DHPE HAS CLOSED OPERATIONS

Dear DHPE Members, Partners and Supporters,

 

It is will great sadness to announce that the Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) have finally closed our doors after being in operation for 72 years. The Association of State and Territorial Directors of Health Promotion and Public Health Education (ASTDHPPHE) dba the Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) is dissolving. As with many non-profits in recent years, DHPE has been challenged to do more with less.  

On behalf of the Board of Directors of DHPE, I want to thank all of you who have contributed to the success of DHPE over its 72-year history.  We have accomplished so much toward our shared mission of strengthening public health capacity in policy and in systems change to improve the health of all and achieve health equity. 

Although DHPE is dissolving, the programs that we collectively have worked hard to establish and maintain will be continuing under new leadership. The assets of these programs have been given to the excellent caretakers, which are highlighted below.

Again, thank you for all your hard work and support of all our programs, and we hope you will utilize some of these resources as your agency pursues future policy, systems and environmental change approaches to improve the health of our communities and the Nation!

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), a nonprofit organization with our shared goals and vision, will maintain the balance of DHPE programs, that are NOT designated below, on their website. We want all of our former members and partners to reach out to SOPHE as an organizational home and/or resource for future professional development. They will be offering special membership pricing for former members of DHPE. SOPHE can be reached at: https://www.sophe.org/

Should you have a need to contact DHPE, we will have email access for a few more months at: info@dhpe.org or dsammons-hackett@dhpe.org

The caretaker agreement is still under development.

The CDC-funded National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention Initiative, also referred to as Partnering4Health has come to an end.

Several resources have been created as a part of Partnering4Health and these resources are available to you and your affiliates to be utilized in the future. Learn more below:

End Day 2


 [a1]Thought this might help people be on time. J

 [a2]Only one concern. This section is 90 minutes, 30 of which may start before lunch due to the 8:30 start but keeping lunch at noon.

 [a3]If we do 30 minutes of Part 3 before lunch, that would change this time. Or we could move the 30-minute Put It Together section prior to the break. I’m ok either way.

 [a4]Thought this might help people be on time. J

 [a5]Moved this one before lunch due to the 8:30 start while keeping  lunch at noon

 [a6]Again – just with the schedule changes before lunch, moved this time.  Or we can wait until after Framing 101 and change the break to 2:30.
