NACCHO to Launch National Profile of LHDs Study in March

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) recently announced that it will be launching its next version of the National Profile of Local Health Departments Study in March 2019. NACCHO invites local health departments throughout the United States to complete its questionnaire on LHD infrastructure, programming, and practices. Since 1989 NACCHO has conducted this survey to provide a comprehensive and accurate snapshot of LHDs in the United States. The survey was last conducted in 2016.

LHDs will have five weeks to complete the questionnaire once launched in March 2019. NACCHO will be hosting virtual “office hours” in March to answer any questions that LHDs may have about the survey. For additional information about the survey and how to prepare for the questionnaire, a 2019 Profile flyer is available here.
