Next Hot Topics Webinar: Becoming a Chief Health Strategist

July 2, 2018

In the July session of Hot Topics in Practice, Clackamas County Public Health Director Dawn Emerick shares how her division embraced the Chief Health Strategist role.

Health departments are experiencing complex changes that require new business models and leadership roles. In the July session of Hot Topics in Practice, Clackamas County Public Health Director Dawn Emerick shares how her division embraced the Chief Health Strategist role to better work with new partners and demonstrate their agency’s value to the community.

Part 1 of this two-part series focused on the nuts and bolts of restructuring a local health department’s teams and services to reflect a modernized public health system. In part 2, Emerick will discuss the last phase of the restructure—implementing a strategic plan—and share how her team used the realignment to position their agency as the county’s Chief Health Strategist. She will also review how this new role brings an equity lens to cross-sector partnerships like an opioid task force or a health needs assessment.

Register today to learn how a local health department stepped into a new community leadership role. View the recording of part 1 for more information.
