Lance Gregory, Environmental Health Division Director with the Virginia Department of Health, discusses Septic Smart Week and the demand for the agency’s Septic and Well Assistance Program. This week is also Falls Prevention Awareness Week.
“Well, the aim of the IPHD is to encourage actionable population health research using the enhanced statewide data. The IPHD governing board has established several research priorities, but within each of those priorities—a unique feature of the IPHD program is that it actively solicits research ideas from a broad range of outside investigators.
The IPHD accepts applications from qualified researchers throughout the country, and we really would like to encourage the nation’s top public health researchers to apply.
So, if folks wanna get the word out to their research partners or apply themselves, they’re welcome to do so.” – Joel Cantor, Director of the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy, explains a project to study population health concerns in New Jersey
