“An exemplary leader is one with vision, foresight, tireless commitment, and humility. Carol exhibits all of these qualities and has demonstrated tremendous success as the District Director of the North Central District Health Department in Idaho,” said Ron Bialek
, PHF’s President. “She has worked across sectors, disciplines, and party lines to affect positive change in her community. Carol always is working to address her community’s health needs in creative and effective ways, and with attention to the impact her work can have at the national level.”
Moehrle has been a tireless public health advocate in her role at Idaho’s North Central District, where she has been the District Director for the five-county region for more than 25 years. The health department serves a population of 120,000 residents. The District was awarded five-year accreditation by PHAB in March 2016.
Moehrle often cites PHF’s TRAIN Learning Network
as a key factor in her department’s achievement of accreditation. She recorded a series of informational videos about the TRAIN Learning Network
in 2017 to discuss her district’s experiences with the TRAIN platform that created a foundation for effective and efficient procedures for completing PHAB’s workforce development planning, preparation, and documentation requirements.
Congratulations to Carol on this outstanding achievement, with sincere appreciation for all that she has accomplished to serve and advance the nation’s health.
