ASTHO’s Caregivers Learning Community Discusses Public Health Collaboration to Support Caregivers

In 2016, ASTHO launched a Caregivers Learning Community to support states working with caregivers by providing them the opportunity to learn from national experts and the experiences of their peers across the country implementing similar programs. The learning community was aimed at equipping the participating states with knowledge and resources to supporting caregivers within the states. ASTHO conducted interviews with three of the participating states: Kirsten Aird from Oregon, Jacquilyn German and Dr. Victor Sutton from Mississippi, as well as Barbara Howe and Tracy Wohl from New Mexico to learn more about their ongoing work with caregivers and how participation in the learning community supported these efforts. Building up on statistics highlighted earlier, the interviews were also aimed at gaining information that can be shared with leadership at other agencies that are also planning to develop and implement programs for caregivers.
