In times of fiscal austerity we are sometimes confronted with making hard choices about our environmental health programs. This presentation will explore how to trim outdated or "sacred cow" programs and strengthen key programs with high public health benefit. The presentation will include case studies on how general fund tax dollars can be replaced with funds from other sources and on how interns, volunteers, and community partnerships can be used to strengthen priority programs.
