AHD Webinar Series: Utilizing Academic Partnerships to Enhance Capacity in Small Health Departments (Archived Webinar)


This archived webinar explores utilizing academic health department (AHD) partnerships – formal partnerships between health departments and academic institutions – to enhance capacity in small health departments. During this webinar, AHD Learning Community member Michael Anguilano III, Accreditation Coordinator for the Kent City Health Department (OH), shared how the Kent City Health Department is utilizing an AHD partnership with Kent State University to expand its capacity and support its journey toward Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation. For this small health department with seven full-time employees, this partnership is broadening its capabilities; speeding up PHAB accreditation efforts; and providing a thought-provoking, real-world experience for Kent State students.
This one hour webinar was originally presented in January 2019 as part of the AHD Webinar Series, a regular webinar series hosted by the AHD Learning Community. Discussion among the presenter and participants that occurred during the live version of the webinar was captured. To learn more, watch the archived webinar below or download the presentation slides.
