The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) announces the premiere of its new podcast series, Power Tools, which explores how technology and innovation partners can increase the effectiveness of public health programs and practitioners.

Hosted by John Patton, NACDD’s Director of Program Relations, the series dives deep with vetted, private-industry companies — from software developers to media giants — whose products and services act as “tools” that add exponential “power” to the work of public health.

These conversations with NACDD partners address some of the pain-points in public health, from increasing awareness to improving physician referrals to presenting data visually.

Each of the podcasts are approximately 30 minutes long and can be streamed on Soundcloud or downloaded at chronicdisease.org/page/PublicationsLibraryLanding, along with other popular NACDD podcast series such as “Health Yeah!” and “Socially Determined.”
