Lessons Learned Along the Road to Public Health Accreditation

Three health departments—Hennepin, Meeker-McLeod-Sibley, and the Minnesota Department of Health—will share real-life experiences with the first five steps of the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation process: pre-application, application, document selection and submission, site visit, and accreditation decision. The presenters will share strategies and tools that can help other health departments who are getting ready to start the process. Bring your questions for the panel.
