Management Course for 2015 concludes

Local boards of health (LBOH) and health departments in Massachusetts are responsible for providing ten essential public health services in their communities. To ensure consistency across LBOH a sub-committee of the Institute developed a competency model and set of competencies for 17 common program areas (i.e., food protection, wastewater, housing, disease surveillance and investigation, vaccine management) and ten cross-cutting areas (i.e., communication, leadership, management).
