Conducting a Public Health Accreditation Self-Assessment: Who, What, Why and How

07/09/19 10:00 am - 11:00 amAmerica/Anchorage

Prior to committing to public health accreditation, or for those who are simply interested in exploring what public health accreditation entails, Tribal public health entities may consider conducting a self-assessment. A public health accreditation self-assessment can be a powerful tool for highlighting strengths in the public health system, as well as identifying gaps and areas for improvement. Many Tribes have found this process extremely valuable and have used it to guide efforts toward improving their public health systems, regardless of whether or not their goal is public health accreditation. Hosted by NIHB, join us as three Tribal public health officials share information about their self-assessment experience including:

  • Why they chose to conduct a self-assessment
  • What they learned about their organization from the process
  • Who was involved, and
  • How they are using the results

Date and Time:
Tuesday, July 9, 2019 from 2-3 PM ET
(Event begins at 1pm CT, 12pm MT, 11 am PT, and 10 am AK time)
Cristina Toledo-Cornell, MD Public Health Director, Lummi Nation Tribal Health Center
Ezra Bayles, MPH, Division Director, Taos Pueblo Health and Community Services
Shelby Stein, RDN, Community Dietician, Fort Berthold Diabetes Program, Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation
