An online forum for MAPP communities
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA), will be conducting a Mobilizing for Partnership through Planning & Partnerships (MAPP) training in Albuquerque, NM on June 15-16, co-locating with the Public Health Improvement Training (PHIT). MAPP is community-owned strategic planning process that results in a community health assessment and community health improvement plan. MAPP works as a framework to help communities prioritize public health issues, identify resources for addressing them, and take action. MAPP partnerships consist of a wide-array of community partners from across-sectors, working together to improve population health.
As a MAPP training participant, you will learn the nuts and bolts of the MAPP process, hear stories from the field from MAPP users, and gain concrete skills for engaging community organizations, partners, and community members in your MAPP process. Participants will also learn the MAPP Network and other resources for continued support after the training. This is an introductory level training.
NACCHO is offering this training at a nominal fee of $75. Participants from any organization are welcome! Please note that participants will be responsible for covering their own travel costs, including transportation and hotel. Lunch will be provided!
If your agency is interested in attending, please register HERE by May 12, 2017. We encourage you to forward this opportunity to your community partners as well!
