Public Health Communications Workgroup – August Meeting

The Public Health Communications Workgroup met at the end of August to finalize the group’s 2016-2017 workplan. The plan will focus on assessing communications capacity at the local level of public health and increasing awareness of the role of communication as a foundational, cross-cutting capacity for local health departments. The workgroup is also interested in undertaking an initiative with the CDC to develop and provide guidance on Zika communications and materials in airports. There is no established guidance currently, and some airports are unwilling to share Zika messaging until the CDC makes some sort of official decree. The next call is scheduled for September 28.
