roadmaptoreadyworkshopRoadmap to Ready, the former New Preparedness Coordinators Training and Mentoring Program, accepted applications in 2015 for new participants and new mentors for the second year of the program.

Roadmap to Ready is designed to help new emergency preparedness coordinators navigate the complex landscape of public health preparedness. The program provides new preparedness coordinators with the knowledge, skills, connections, and resources they need to successfully prepare their local jurisdictions for new and emerging threats. NACCHO designed the program for preparedness coordinators at local health departments who have been in their roles for less than two years.

As part of the program, a workshop for accepted participants will be held on
Monday, April 18, 2016 at the 2016 Preparedness Summit to provide a high-level overview of the most important policies, topics, and resources that impact public health preparedness. The workshop will include a variety of focused, collaborative breakout sessions on priority areas that make up the foundation of public health preparedness work. New preparedness coordinators will be connected to a peer mentoring team and will leave the session with an individual development plan and an assortment of resources to continue learning after the workshop has concluded. Additional program details including eligibility information and participant and mentor duties can be found on the Roadmap to Ready Website.
