The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors’ Public Health Leadership & Practice is proud to sponsor GEAR:UP (Understanding Publications), a journal club for chronic disease prevention and health promotion. Practitioners interested in learning more about leadership and management best practices, and how the practices might be applied to our work in public health will benefit from the club. GEAR:UP is held every third Thursday of the month at 3 p.m. ET. Articles and podcasts for discussion are selected from the peer-reviewed literature such as Preventing Chronic Disease and the American Journal of Public Health, and mainstream media such as the Harvard Business Review. For information how to participate, contact Tamara Engel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
