Supporting Local Health Departments as Chief Health Strategists
Local health departments (LHDs) screen and refer community members to healthcare, social, and economic resources as part of their key role in the DHHS Division of Public Health's Health Hubs network. This project is working to prevent and help individuals address diseases (such as cancer and diabetes) and to improve overall community health and coordination. NALHD is working with all 20 Nebraska LHDs on this project, coordinating and providing technical assistance related to Health Hub implementation.
