Thursday, May 6, 2010

Community partnerships are vital for an effective public health system, according to Judith Monroe, M.D., the newly appointed director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Office for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support. In Indiana, Monroe formed partnerships with businesses, universities, schools and faith-based groups. These partnerships resulted in many new health programs designed to prevent illness and help everyone in Indiana live a healthier life.
