Public Health Ethics Peer Learning Forum: PH Ethics in Action

This webinar is hosted by NACCHO, the CDC, and public health experts from academia and local health departments to debut a new public health ethics platform.

The Public Health Ethics Peer Learning Forum, hosted by NACCHO, is a virtual community that will allow users to ask questions, engage in discussions, keep up to date on events, and share resources related to building capacity in public health ethics in local health departments.

Along with a demonstration of the platform itself, participants were able to view and participate in a real time deliberation of a public health ethics case.

Participants will be able to:

  • Start immediately engaging with the Public Health Ethics Peer Learning Forum
  • Select public health ethics cases appropriate for deliberation
  • Consider questions to better understand, diagnose a public health ethics issue to ultimately decide on a course of action.
