Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) has received three National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Model Practice Awards, one on behalf of work at TCHD and two on behalf of collaborative work with the Metro Denver Partnership for Health (MDPH). Model Practices demonstrate exemplary qualities in response to a local public health need and these innovative solutions can be replicated by others across the country.
TCHD received a Model Practice award for its Opiate Mapping project. The MDPH — a growing collaboration between TCHD and other local public health departments in the Metro Region — received two Model Practice awards, one for the Partnership itself (submitted by TCHD) and one for the Healthy Beverage Partnership (submitted by DPH), both of which are growing evidence of the power of collaboration in moving the needle on public health priorities. In addition, TCHD received a Promising Practice award for its work in Public Health Cybersecurity, as well as a National Advocate of the Year award. This is the 15th consecutive year that one or more TCHD programs have received a Model Practice Award, for a total of 23 awards. No other local health department has accomplished this feat.
The awards recognize:
Since 2003, NACCHO’s Model Practice Awards have honored programs that demonstrate how local health departments and their community partners can effectively collaborate to address local public health challenges.
