Dallas: NACCHO

July 10-12, 2013. The NACCHO acronym denotes National Association of County and City Health Officials.  The theme was “Public Health by the Numbers. Our Story. Our Time. Our Future.” Local health departments face a rapidly changing landscape. They encounter pressure from limited resources and must increasingly focus on new and traditional roles, government accountability, and effectiveness models.  NACCHO delegates could explore the current and future status of public health, and interact with the professionals who work every day to promote health and safety. Seminars offered opportunities to learn about research breakthroughs, new technologies, and innovative solutions and products.  The public health finance balance sheet— came under scrutiny, as a way of understanding the numbers that inform strategies.  All in all, NACCHO was definitely ‘healthier’ than… well… eating nachos, for instance.
