Population Health Services

The initial CCNI model included public health nurses because of their ability to provide vital medical, health education and community building services to residents.  On the ground, it was evident that PHN staff are key to building and maintaining ACPHD staff credibility on the ground. Moreover, the PHN forged trusting relationships with residents, which enables other CCNI staff in their effort to partner with community residents on capacity building efforts.
