A commonly-held misconception is that when health department of unequal size partner around CJS, large health departments will end up using their own resources without adequate reimbursement and smaller health departments will be overtaken and lose their decision-making authority. In fact, the Center for Sharing Public Health Services has worked with a number of teams that have clearly demonstrated the benefits to all parties when health departments of different sizes collaborate. Our featured speaker will describe the establishment and implementation of a collaboration between Polk and Marion counties in Oregon to address communicable diseases.

Objectives:

  1. Describe the benefits to large and small local health departments when they are partners in a CJS arrangement.

  2. Understand potential barriers to sharing between partners of unequal size and strategies to overcome them.

Guest Speaker:

Katrina Rothenberger, MPH
Public Health Division Director
Marion County Health & Human Services, Oregon
