ODPHP Deputy Director Carter Blakey Appears on Public Health Review Morning Edition

In June 2021, ODPHP launched the Healthy People 2030 Champion Program to recognize a diverse array of public and private organizations impacting health outcomes at the national, state, tribal, county, and local level. In the two years since this partnership initiative’s launch, more than 178 organizations have been recognized as Healthy People 2030 Champions.

Recently, ODPHP Deputy Director Carter Blakey appeared on the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) news, announcements, and public health initiatives newscast Public Health Review Morning Edition to discuss the shared responsibility that is public health, and how Healthy People 2030 Champions are integral to making progress toward achieving the Healthy People 2030 vision of a society in which all people can achieve their full potential for health and well-being across the lifespan.
