Rebuilding Advocacy in Public Health

This entry is part 17 of 17 in the series Management Moments

Public health is under attack across the nation particularly in legislative bodies at local, state, and federal levels. We cannot keep politics out of public health, but we can ensure our workforce effectively engages in the policy process. The latest Management Moment column in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice shares 6 action steps, offers training guidance on core advocacy skills and knowledge, and introduces a new field guide to public health advocacy to enable public health leaders to become more competent as they engage with elected officials in pursuit of healthier communities.
