The Risk Communication and Information Sharing Workgroup held its inaugural meeting on Aug. 1. Members of the group introduced themselves on the call and explained the types of communications activities they each lead within their health departments. The group brainstormed about how they can be most useful to NACCHO and their peers. To that end, they developed a list of activities and priorities that could help guide their work in the coming year. The group has drafted their work plan for this budget year and is in the process of reviewing it.
