  • 2023 Regional Virtual Summits

    Dear Local Health Department Recipients, 


    Please join NACCHO for an upcoming OT21-2103 technical assistance offering (virtual regional summits) on Addressing the Gap: Embedding Health Equity into Maternal Health Programming!  


    Each of the five virtual regional summits will highlight how local health departments can take action on the current maternal health crisis and give attendees the opportunity to hear from public health leaders in a panel discussion followed by a peer learning activity.   


    These summits provide a unique opportunity and a safe space to analyze the health inequities and discriminatory systems that birthing persons encounter throughout the maternal care experience. Discussions will focus on local, state, and national policies and initiatives, community engagement, planning and preparation. These virtual events will share timely and relevant information to advance COVID-19 Health Disparities strategies and help transform those systems that play a crucial role in supporting maternal health.  


    Each region will convene for a 2-hour virtual summit. Please register for your region here: 

    October 10th: Northeast 

    October 10th: West 

    October 11th: South/Southeast 

    October 11th: Southwest 

    October 12th: Midwest

    NACCHO, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, will provide funding to strengthen LHD capacity for healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and antimicrobial resistant (AR) prevention and response through the Building Up Infection Prevention & Control in Local Departments in Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance (BUILD HAIAR) Project. The goal of this project is for LHDs to leverage the CDC (Interim) Local Health Department Strategy for HAI/AR (Referred to as “the CDC LHD HAI/AR Strategy”) as the foundation to increase LHD capacity in the following areas:

    • Support LHD capacity for HAI prevention and response;
    • Advance LHD engagement in AR-related initiatives and activities, including promoting antibiotic stewardship (AS);
    • Enhance coordination and connection with the State Health Department HAI/AR programs;
    • Develop and identify resources, lessons learned, and best practices for other LHDs; and
    • Build strategic approaches to HAI/AR, including addressing health equity.

    This project will build upon existing efforts to increase the capacity of LHDs to improve healthcare infection prevention and response efforts, including COVID-19 and other HAIs, as well as those infections caused by AR pathogens.
