Looking Back on a Decade of Resource Sharing
A Message from the Director of the Center for Sharing Public Health Services
December 2021 — After almost 10 years of managing the Center for Sharing Public Health Services, I have decided that it’s time to retire. As I step down at the end of 2021, I’m leaving the Center in very capable hands. Grace Gorenflo — who has been with us since the beginning and was very instrumental in developing the concept of the Center — assumes the role of Center Director in January 2022. Recently, I sat down with Grace to reflect on our past 10 years of activities. In this column, I’m going to hit the highlights of our conversation.
In Nevada, an agreement between Douglas County and Carson City Health and Human Services, which began providing inspections in Douglas County, generated a strong environmental health services program that benefits both jurisdictions.
Nine counties in the southern tier of New York discovered the value of developing detailed supporting documents to ensure smooth and efficient operations when their mutual aid agreement was activated.
Washington State Department of Health Immunization Program staff worked closely with the local health jurisdictions throughout the state to redesign program administration and enhance program integrity.
