Community Health Services Mailbag

At this time, MDH is sharing job, general information, and virtual event posts in the Mailbag. MDH will not share in-person events in the Mailbag for the time being.

 

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.

The Mailbag provides a coordinated, non-duplicative, emailed source of information for local public health professionals, including announcements, virtual/online events, tools, resources, and jobs.

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. Please do not submit posts to this email address, but instead use the "submit a post" button below.

How long will my post run in the weekly emails?

MDH will include your post in weekly emails as follows:

  • Virtual/online events: Until the event has passed
  • Jobs: Until the post has closed, or for one month (for open-ended job posts and job posts with far-future close dates)
  • General information: For two weeks
  • In-person events: MDH is not sharing in-person events via the Mailbag at this time.

You do not need to re-submit your post for inclusion for each week's Mailbag during the period it runs.

If you've submitted an open-ended job post and would like it to run again after two weeks have passed, please re-submit the job or contact health.mailbag@state.mn.us.
