NACCHO recognizes the many partners that work with NACCHO and our members. These partners contribute collaboration and financial support. Together we work to advance local public health. This section contains selected news and resources that are of use to local health departments from our partners.
In the Spotlight
With grants from a coalition including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and with NACCHO's support, an interdisciplinary team at the University of Kentucky is launching a new study designed to "Identify, compare, and contrast exceptional models of collaborative partnerships involving public health departments, hospitals, and other stakeholders committed to improving community health and determine the key lessons learned from their experience."
You are cordially invited to nominate collaborative models that are well-established and, in your opinion, demonstrate all or many of the core characteristics of successful partnerships spelled out on pp. 3-4 in the Executive Summary.
We encourage your participation in this study.
If you have questions about types of collaborative partnerships the team is seeking to identify and study in-depth, please contact:
