2014 was an exciting time for health transformation in the Northwest region. NWCPHP played a leadership role to create connections between the public health and health care systems, which included new partnerships to advance health equity and new interdisciplinary trainings to support the workforce.

We partnered with the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association and Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States to pilot a workshop on public health-primary care integration and leadership. Our evaluation staff also provided assessment and analytic support to the Snohomish County Health Leadership Coalition—an innovative alliance of public-private organizations dedicated to improving health at a community level.

Our redesigned Northwest Public Health magazine, which was distributed to 5,700 people, looked at how the practice of public health is being changed by health care reform. Additionally, NWCPHP faculty and local partners created an initiative to address disparities in access to emergency medical services in King County, Washington.

In addition to these new ventures, NWCPHP continued to support our national, regional, state, local, and tribal public health partners with established training, research, evaluation, and communication activities. In 2014, we had 13,776 people participate in our online courses and an estimated 1,778 people participate in our Hot Topics webinar series. Staff and faculty welcomed 101 scholars to our Summer Institute and Management Certificate programs.
