New Ideas to Improve Day-to-Day Public Health Practice

July 10-12, 2018
New Orleans, LA

Each year, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Annual convenes hundreds of local health department leaders, staff, and partners from across the nation to share ideas, innovations, and perspectives on key public health practice issues. NACCHO Annual 2018 will take place July 10–12 in New Orleans. This year’s conference theme, “Unleashing the Power of Public Health,” highlights the impact public health makes on entire communities to mitigate disasters and outbreaks and improve population health and health outcomes. This year’s six educational tracks are aligned with current local health department activities to improve day-to-day local public health practice.

    Tribal Health Research Agenda: Governance, Trust, and Culture

    The primary goal of the annual NNHRT conference is to contribute toward the growth of a Native health research community that is dedicated to honoring tribal decision-making processes, building trust through tribal community participation and guided by tribal cultural knowledge and values. Ultimately, the aims of Native health programs are best achieved when Native decision-makers, researchers and community members are driving the research agenda, conducting the research, and sharing the outcomes with the tribal health stakeholder community.

    We therefore encourage all NNHRT participants to consider, when sharing and discussing individual research projects and exploring ideas for future projects, how does this work promote and sustain tribal governance, community trust, and cultural values and understandings.
