Request for Applications: Partnerships for Population Health Learning Opportunity

ASTHO, in partnership with CDC, will provide a series of virtual learning opportunities for state/territorial public health agency staff to improve awareness of how to engage with Medicaid, transportation, and housing sectors to find common goals and priorities, create a process for intentional and meaningful information-sharing, and communicate effectively. The learning opportunities will also include peer-to-peer sharing and case-based studies discussing existing cross-sector collaborations that advance health equity and improve population health outcomes. ASTHO invites state or territorial public health agency (S/THA) staff to apply for this opportunity. One representative per jurisdiction (5-9 jurisdictions total) will be selected to participate in this cohort.
