The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is hosting two upcoming webinars in the weeks following Thanksgiving:

Responding to Zika and Other Public Health Emergencies: A Spotlight on Current Events
Tuesday, November 30, 2017 
3:30-5:00 pm ET

Public health and healthcare preparedness are cornerstones to how Tribal communities can equip themselves  to address the threat of Zika and other events of public health significance. This webinar will highlight two national perspectives on ways communities have been preparing for and responding to Zika and other health emergencies. The Tribal Emergency Management Association will highlight efforts to support Tribal nations in improving healthcare preparedness. The National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) will share approaches local health departments have taken in collaboration with partners to better prevent and control Zika. Presenters will provide resources for Tribal nations who can then leverage these for their own preparation and response activities.

Fundamentals of Evaluation for Public Health Programming
Thursday, December 7, 2017 
3:30-4:15 pm ET

Evaluation is a key programmatic function; however, it often gets overlooked during program implementation, or confusion over how to conduct a good and thorough evaluation may lead staff to forgo such efforts. Evaluation helps us to make solid programmatic decisions and holds us accountable to ourselves, our funders and our communities.  This training will move through the different levels of process and outcome evaluation - clearly defining them and providing suggestions and tips on how to conduct evaluations easily and successfully. The webinar will use widely accepted terminology and methodologies so that the basics are well understood and can be universally applied across different programs or disciplines. The facilitator will also briefly discuss how to construct evaluation plans (including evaluation questions and indicators) that align with implementation plans, and how to make sure that these plans align with one another.

Note: This webinar will not cover how to create evaluation instruments or how to create logic models.

Webinars are held as part of the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) Zika project with support from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although these webinars use Zika information as examples, they also contain information that may be applicable to a variety of Tribal public health issues.
