Bureau for Public Health (BPH) Professional Development Forums

The BPH Strategic Plan, Orange Workgroup was created, in part, to promote a culture of quality improvement within the Bureau. To achieve this goal, the strategic plan workgroup hosts professional development forums throughout the year.
Each forum has a unique theme with subjects designed to improve BPH staff knowledge of quality improvement topics, and to inform staff of BPH strategic plan implementation progress. Office and program specific topics are introduced to improve inter-office knowledge and communication and interactive activities are designed to collect feedback from staff on best practices and suggestions for BPH process and systems improvement.
