NACCHO University: A New Online Learning Platform for Local Health Departments

NACCHO University is a new resource that offers free online courses and learning modules to help local health department (LHD) staff develop their public health knowledge and competencies. This new website features an online module titled “Building Capacity From Within: Demonstrating the Value of the Medical Reserve Corps to Local Health Departments” that illustrates the value and role of Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers within LHDs. Designed for LHDs that do not have an MRC unit in their jurisdiction, this module demonstrates how an MRC unit can increase an LHD’s ability to deliver essential services to its community. The website also offers a course titled “Public Health and the Law: An Emergency Preparedness Training Kit.” Visit NACCHO University to take a course and for more information about this new resource.
