Survive & Thrive

LIFEPATH partnered with the Tennessee Institute of Public Health to apply to become a regional training center for the National Association of County and City Health Officials' Survive and Thrive Program and was granted the award. The Survive and Thrive: Roadmap for New Local Health officials is a 12 month learning opportunity designed to enhance the skills of new local health officials and is made possible with funding from the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation. LIFEPATH and the Tennessee Institute for Public Health serve as the southeast training center serving Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Our southeast center is responsible for thirty fellows and six coaches from that region who go through the training program and for whom the center will be responsible for all logistics, coach-to-fellow and fellow-to-fellow communication, job shadowing, and supplemental training (required part of the program, where each region develops training outside of the curriculum with local focus).
