Important webinar about new public health framework that could affect DHPE members.

At the ASTHO Affiliates meeting last week (attended by DHPE’s Chair Heather Borski and CEO Susan Goekler), RESOLVE made a presentation about a framework for Foundational Capabilities and Foundational Areas they have developed with RWJF funding. They are soliciting feedback.

Development of a foundational capabilities and foundational areas framework builds on a 2012 Institute of Medicine report [PDF-1.56MB] that recommended identifying a "minimum package of public health services” (recommendation 8), as well as efforts in Washington, Ohio [PDF-969KB], and other states to define such foundational capabilities and areas.

Work to "cost out” the foundational capabilities and foundational areas framework is under way by Dr. Glen Mays, University of Kentucky, and a group of experts, with initial estimates coming late this fall.

For more information on the draft Foundational Capabilities and Foundational Areas framework, join national, state, and local leaders for a webinar on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, from 3:00 to 4:00 (EDT). Click here to register.
