CHS Mailbag

The Community Health Services Mailbag and Calendar—or "the Mailbag" as it is commonly called—is a weekly email bulletin of information submitted by and for local public health in Minnesota.

The Mailbag provides a coordinated, non-duplicative source of information for local public health professionals, including announcements, events, tools, resources, and jobs. MDH no longer posts Mailbag submissions online; it exists solely as an email list.

This free service is designed with the following Minnesota audiences in mind: SCHSAC members, CHS administrators, public health directors, local public health staff, MDH staff, and friends of local public health in Minnesota.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Public Health Practice at health.mailbag@state.mn.us.

About the Mailbag

What is the Mailbag? The Community Health Services Mailbag and Calendar—or "the Mailbag" as it is commonly called—is a weekly email bulletin of information submitted by and for local public health in Minnesota. It provides a coordinated, non-duplicative source of information for local public health professionals, including announcements, events, tools, resources, and jobs. MDH no longer posts Mailbag submissions online, other than events; it exists solely as an email list. This free service is designed with the following Minnesota audiences in mind:

  • SCHSAC members
  • CHS administrators
  • Public health directors
  • local public health staff
  • MDH staff
  • Friends of local public health in Minnesota

Who can submit information to the Mailbag? Anyone can submit information for inclusion using the online Mailbag Submission Form. Please note: We reserve the right to edit your submissions for length and content. We also reserve the right to exclude submissions.

How long will my post run in the weekly emails? MDH will include your post in weekly emails until it has passed (events) or closed (job posts), or for one month (general information and open-ended job posts). You do not need to re-submit your post for inclusion for each week's email while it has not expired or passed.

Who receives Mailbag emails? A summary of the week's CHS Mailbag and Calendar postings is emailed weekly to people who subscribe via GovDelivery. This list currently has over 3,700 subscribers.

Why has the Mailbag changed? You may have noticed that the submission form for the Mailbag looks different, or that you now see posts via the weekly GovDelivery message. Based on user feedback and changing technology, MDH has moved to the current system to better meet customers' needs.
