Message from the Accreditation Administrator

Amy Belflower Thomas, MHA, MSPH, CPH

The theme of this year’s annual report is building connections. As the program continues to grow and evolve, we are working to strengthen the connections of public health professionals locally and across the state. To this end, we formally launched the new online chat-based communication tool, Microsoft Teams, established the Agency Accreditation Advisory Council (AAC) and began the rollout of the new on-line dashboard for evidence submission and review. Learn more about these projects and other program changes in our annual report.
