The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is working with CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health to provide capacity-building support to local health departments to utilize tracking data through the National Environmental Health Tracking Program. The primary task of the Tracking Program is to translate environmental and public health data into meaningful information that would be used to improve community health. The Tracking Program has developed several protocols and resources for state and local jurisdictions to strengthen their capacity for environmental public health. However, despite their outreach efforts, there are some local jurisdictions that remain unaware of tracking data and how it can be used to positively impact community health. One of the Tracking Program’s priorities is to increase awareness of tracking among local health departments. One of ways this will be carried out is through peer-to-peer engagement.
