NACDD and Tracking Program Release New Publication

Friday, February 17, 2017   (0 Comments)

The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) has partnered with the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (Tracking Program) to release a new publication entitled, “Chronic Disease Prevention and Environmental Health.”

The publication highlights the work and resources of the Tracking Program, which has made great strides in closing the gap between environmental hazards, disease, exposure, health and data. The Tracking Program has not only provided a national network that gathers critical information, facts and data from a wide variety of sources; it has also led the way in building a foundation for health departments to collect and disseminate environmental and health information in a systematic and standardized way, making broad integration of data possible across local, state and national databases.

The publication also features two full-page inserts from partner organizations: The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO).

Chronic disease practitioners have been very responsive to NACDD’s efforts to raise awareness about the Tracking Network and have shown great interest in the collaborative efforts. The Tracking in Action project has continued to build upon the previous years’ work, strengthen partnerships, and promote the Tracking Network and its value to states and local communities. The publication is intended to serve as a promotional reference resource and is available in both print and eBook formats.
