The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) is the voice of the nation’s nearly 3,000 local health departments. NACCHO hosts the regularly scheduled NACCHO Podcast Series Podcast from Washington.
In this week’s episode of Podcast from Washington, Eli Briggs and Ian Goldstein discuss the House Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS), and Education appropriations bill that seeks to boost federal funding for public health programs. They also discuss the Climate Action Now Act (H.R. 9) in the House.
Later in the program, Ian Goldstein sat down with Director for Emergency Preparedness and Response at the Broward County Health Department Terri Sudden. Sudden talks about her health departments response to two mass shootings; one at the Ft. Lauderdale airport, and the mass shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018.
