On April 21st and 22nd WALHDAB and DPH held it’s spring orientation for new local health officers. There was a total of five new health officers, three of which belong to a new training cohort. The training was held in Steven’s Point, Wisconsin at SentryWorld Golf Course.

Event highlights include a colors communication training, learning about stress reduction and collective impact, exploring the new trends for modernizing health departments, diving into local health department budgeting, and learning about the many CHIPP resources available. The training ended with a session on What is it really like to be a new LHO, that provided some perspective as the LHO’s continue on into their first year.

Congratulations to our newest orientation graduate Kathy Ronchi from Douglas County!
