About the Cover

In the Building Capacity column in this issue, “Embracing a Unified Brand Builds Capacity for Health Departments,” Darryl Booth discusses the importance of a consistent brand and a unified message across health departments and uses the example of restaurant inspections and the success of grading systems in various departments throughout the country. His column is a call to action for NEHA, its members, leaders, and staff to develop a unified placard or grading system for restaurant inspections that can be applied everywhere.
