Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) Reviewer Recruitment Open!

Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) is currently seeking national reviewers for our Fall 2019 review of local health department applications. This is a great opportunity to learn about innovative practices in preparedness, network with colleagues from across the nation, and serve the local public health preparedness community.

As a reviewer, you would work on a three-person team to review the emergency response plans from two health agencies applying for PPHR recognition (or three agencies applying for re-recognition) and assess their level of compliance with the PPHR criteria. This process generally requires approximately 50 hours of work over five weeks, plus additional time for reviewer training and brief conference calls with your team. Reviewers are also required to attend one in-person meeting, which is scheduled for the week of October 14. The meeting location will be finalized in the coming weeks. NACCHO will cover travel, accommodations, and meals for the meeting. For more specific details regarding the review process timeline, please review the Fall 2019 PPHR Review Calendar located on the PPHR webpage.

If you are interested in participating, please complete this brief online survey by close of business Friday, July 12. We would appreciate your distribution of this information to other individuals who are knowledgeable about public health preparedness who may be interested in volunteering as national reviewers. If you have any additional questions, please email Please note that completing this survey does not guarantee you a spot as a national reviewer.
