New Departments Joining Public Health Digital Library

Posted by on June 2nd, 2022 Posted in: Blog

With our access year just beginning in May, NPHCO welcomes departments joining the Public Health Digital Library. Two states and two local health department groups join the program, the four entities represent several dozen departments who will now offer their workforce information resources for their evidence-based practice.

Welcome South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.  One of SCDHEC’s agency strategies is ‘Science in Action’ where “science, quality data and analytical processes” is used to “make fully informed, well-reasoned decisions that instill trust and confidence in expertise and decision making capabilities.”  SCHEC’s Research and Planning unit is heading the PHDL program at the department.

Local Health Departments (LHD)

The PHDL is coming to local health departments in a big way this year.  State health departments have led the way in supporting their states’ local health agencies through their sponsorship of the Public Health Digital Library program.
