NACDD invites Chronic Disease/Health Promotion Directors and staff to apply for a leadership development, mentoring, and learning opportunity called Generate Educate Activate Respond (GEAR) Groups.

This prestigious opportunity is a selective process by application; click here. Applications are due by 11:59 pm ET on January 5, 2018.


The 2018 NACDD GEAR Group theme is Accelerating Population Health. Participants will engage in peer-to-peer learning and sharing opportunities to examine innovative models that align population health improvement with chronic disease prevention and health promotion efforts carried out by state health departments. As public health practitioners, we greatly understand access to high quality health care services and the conditions in which people live, learn, work and play contribute to the health of individuals and communities. GEAR Group participants will discuss and gain a deeper understanding of population health by examining definitions and examples, within and outside of the health care sector, that address the social, cultural, economic and environmental determinants of health.
