The EXCITE Newsletter: August 4th, 2022

A New (to us) Organization to Partner with


While attending the annual conference for NACCHO, the National Association of City and County Health Officials, the EXCITE team learned of ASTHO, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. For those of you with more statewide or territory focus, these partners may be of interest, or they could be a partner to help you branch out to other local municipalities for new connections. Check ASTHO and their resources out at

Public Health Collaborative: 

  • Misinformation Alert – stay up to date about what misinformation is circulating, lately highly focused on COVID-19, and how much of a threat it seems to be.
  • Report on Communicating through COVID-19 and Beyond – In early 2022, the Public Health Communications Collaborative conducted a national survey of public health personnel in 51 states and territories. Respondents’ “reflections highlight the immense impact of public health communicators since 2020 and offer a powerful wealth of insights for protecting public health through COVID-19 and beyond.” The report features a tip sheet that can be shared with others. Also on the page is a link to a panel discussion digging deeper into the report.
