This session will also focus on optimizing DPH resources in support of accreditation; understanding specific elements of the accreditation standards and measures; identifying populations with barriers to health care; addressing health inequities; collaborating in community health improvement planning; and effectively communicating with the community served by the DPH.  Army public health professionals who are currently working in or will be working at installation DPHs now or in the near future will benefit most from session participation.
