  • Things you find in the mail....From the National Association of City and County Health Officials. Congratulations to every CPASA member!

Bureau, Putnam & Marshall County Health Departments were honored with the Model Practice Award at the 2017 Annual Conference of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). The award celebrates local health departments for developing programs that demonstrate exemplary and replicable best practices in response to a critical local public health need. 

Community Partners Against Substance Abuse (CPASA) was one of 41 local health department programs to receive NACCHO’s prestigious Model Practice Award. 

Since 2003, NACCHO’s Model Practice Awards have honored programs, resources, and tools that demonstrate how local health departments and their community partners can effectively collaborate to address local public health challenges. Each innovative project receiving the Model Practice Award was peer-reviewed and selected from a competitive group of over 100 applicants.
 
 "This award puts Bureau, Putnam & Marshall Health Departments in special company with a select group of health departments that exemplify a forward-thinking, proactive approach toward protecting and promoting the health of communities nationwide,” said NACCHO Interim Executive Director and Chief of Government Affairs Laura Hanen.

 CPASA is now part of an online, searchable database of successful public health practices in areas that range from immunization and maternal and child health, to infectious diseases and emergency preparedness. The NACCHO Model Practice database allows local health departments, public health partners, and other important stakeholders to learn about the good work being done by local health departments across the country. The database also provides users an opportunity to learn from best practices and what resources are needed to implement comparable programs in other jurisdictions that produce results. 

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) represents the nation's 2,800 local governmental health departments. These cities, counties, metropolitan, district and tribal departments work every day to protect and promote health and well-being for all people in their communities.Things you find in the mail....From the National Association of City and County Health Officials.
