DHPE provides input on Public Health Accreditation Standards

Three DHPE members participated in a Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) think tank to revisit the Health Education and Health Communications standard (Domain 3) included in accreditation requirements. DHPE Board member Danielle Kenneweg (WA), DHPE's Health Equity Committee Chair Chip Allen (OH), and DHPE's Executive Director Susan Goekler brought the voice of health educators, state health agencies, and health equity specialists to the 13-person meeting. The original standards did not address social media, which was a major topic of discussion. DHPE members will have a chance to vet the draft revised standards that come from the Think Tank's input this summer or fall.

PHAB is recruiting peer reviewers to be part of site visit teams. PHAB covers expenses and provides training, but does not provide compensation. If you are interested in being considered as a PHAB Site visitor, let Susan Goekler know and she will forward your name.
