NACDD Board President’s Challenge

NACDD Board Presidents Drive Innovation in State and Territorial Health Promotion

The NACDD Board President’s Challenge is a one-year project that the NACDD Board President develops to focus NACDD Member competency in an emerging or innovative issue in chronic disease prevention.

Established in 2016, previous President’s Challenges have focused on addressing the social determinants of health, promoting health equity, enhancing Member leadership capacity, and exploring the opportunities that a population health focus can offer to chronic disease prevention and control.

The 2020-2021 Board President’s Challenge, led by Dr. Susan Kansagra will focus on advancing racial equity as a core component of state chronic disease programs. 

 

"As we work upstream to address root causes through policy, systems, and environmental changes, we must redouble our efforts to dismantle structural racism and create equitable communities where all have the opportunity to live a healthy life."
