Congratulations to the New Mexico Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Rhode Island Department of Health for being awarded Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation on November 10, joining the nine state health agencies that have already achieved this designation.

With these accreditation decisions, PHAB estimates that 45 percent of the United States population is now being served by health departments that meet PHAB's national standards for delivering quality programs and services.  DHPE’s members in those states deserve at least some of the credit!
