Dear Subscriber,
PHF E-News brings you the latest information on how you can use performance management, quality improvement, and workforce development to improve the quality and performance of your organization and the health of your community.
 
Build and Strengthen Your Academic Health Department in Today's Evolving Public Health Environment
 
At a recent in-person meeting of the Academic Health Department Learning Community, development of successful Academic Health Department (AHD) partnerships and potential roles for AHDs were discussed with public health professionals from across the country. In her latest PHF Pulse Blog post, Kathleen Amos shares her takeaways from this session at the 2012 American Public Health Association Annual Meeting.
 
Share Your Health Department's Performance Management and Quality Improvement Success Story
 
The Public Health Foundation (PHF) is dedicated to recognizing the outstanding work of health departments that are improving the quality and performance of public health practice. PHF is collecting and promoting stories from state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments that have utilized performance management systems and/or quality improvement tools to improve health.
