Hot Topics in Practice: Building Trust for Local Public Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has surfaced a range of emotions from people, especially anger and frustration.

In the October session of Hot Topics in Practice, Melody Bowyer, Director of Idaho’s South Central Public Health District, explains how she builds trust with elected officials, community partners, and the public to address the known and unknown health risks associated with the pandemic.

This one-hour webinar will include an overview of the health district’s unique characteristics, a snapshot of how COVID-19 has impacted the people and industries there, and a discussion of key leadership strategies to manage the politics of the pandemic. The presentation will also include recommendations for supporting staff morale to manage stress and avoid burnout as the pandemic continues.
