DHPE and NACDD were invited to represent the states’ perspective as part of a symposium celebrating 25 years of the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion  (NCCDPHP) at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  All the previous and current NCCDPHP Center directors shared the podium with DHPE’s representative Johnnie “Chip” Allen and NACDD’s representative Sue Grinnell.  In his two minute presentation, Chip emphasized the importance of partnerships between state and federal health agencies and the need of the 21st Century work force for the types of skills that health educators and health promotion specialists bring (generalist, flexible, policy, systems, and health equity). On the panel were Dr. Ursula Bauer, Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, Dr. James Marks, Dr. Janet Collins, and Chip Allen and Sue Grinnell.
