NNPHI Interest Groups and Workgroups
NNPHI staff facilitate standing and ad hoc committees and workgroups to address varied interests of the membership, including membership, current and emerging health issue areas and competency development. Committees and workgroups are determined by the NNPHI's board and membership. NNPHI members are solicited to participate based on their individual competencies and interests.
Current interest groups include the State Health Policy Collaborative (SHPC), which is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of all Americans by advancing non-partisan, evidence-based state and federal policies and programs. SHPC helps expand each member organization’s ability to reach policymakers in order to foster more informed state and federal health care policies. SHPC serves as a learning community and ensures that research regarding health care and health policies are disseminated and utilized appropriately and efficiently. NNPHI works with the SHPC steering committee to facilitate committee calls and workgroups; enhance the collaborative's online work space; coordinate an annual in-person meeting; and organize of webinars on current and emerging policy issues.
