The goal of this research was to provide data and findings on the structure, responsibilities, and
educational needs of local boards of health. The objectives of the survey were to:
*Assess the current status of local board of health functions, thereby determining areas where NALBOH can develop new or supplement current materials that will increase local boards of health effectiveness.
*Identify critical areas of need as indicated by survey respondents in which NALBOH can provide
education and support to local boards of health.
*Determine the most efficient, desirable, and cost-effective means by which local board of health
members can be reached for communication and training.
*Build a more thorough database of electronic communication contacts for local boards of health to
provide up-to-date information and efficient communication.
*Provide a useful dataset that can be utilized by researchers and collaborators in the field of Public
Health Systems and Services Research (PHSSR).
The results of this survey will enhance NALBOH's efforts to strengthen good governance where public health begins - with local boards of health.
Funding for this project was provided by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
