About 2017 Model Practices

NACCHO’s Model Practices Program nationally honors and recognizes outstanding local public health practice and shares the outstanding practices through the Model Practices Database. By submitting a practice, LHDs contribute to the overall improvement of public health through effective evidence-based practice methods.

NACCHO strives to recognize the best local public health practices in the country. This is why we created the Model Practices Awards.
