Food Safety Sharing Session: Workforce Development
During this sharing session, speakers will discuss some of the challenges that local health departments have been experiencing in employee retention and workforce burnout, and how these issues were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual session will be hosted by the National Association of City and County Health Officials and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It will feature a panel discussion and Q&A with Dr. Bruce Dart, Health Director at Tulsa Health Department; Lisa Macon Harrison, Health Director at Granville Vance Public Health; and Dr. Alan Melnick, Director/Health Officer at Clark County Public Health. Both speakers and participants will be provided an opportunity to share experiences and discuss ways to reengage staff in their work, especially at the local level.
