Systems Thinking, Vermont and New Hampshire partners to be featured at NNPHI Annual

NEPHTC is pleased to announce that it will be featured at the annual NNPHI meeting in Washington, D.C.  in two poster sessions.  Both posters feature work that originated in a public health workforce need that was made into reality by the collaboration by NEPHTC and it’s impressive state partnerships.  If you have the chance, learn how Systems Thinking has been applied at the Vermont Department of Health, and how workforce training for public health professionals and students is on the increase in New Hampshire via the New Hampshire Public Health Association and its partners.





Karla Todd, MBA, MSM, Program Manager, NEPHTC and NEPHTC Advisory Committee member Heidi Klein, MSPH, Director of Planning and Healthcare Quality, VT Department of Health will be presenting on “Systems Thinking Training Program, with a Plan for Action.”  Abstract submission is available here.  Other co-authors include NEPHTC evaluator Hope Kenefick, MSW, PhD, HWK Consulting LLC, and Heidi Gortakowski, MPH, formerly of the Vermont Department of Health.
