About Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconferences
OSTLTS hosts a Vital Signs Town Hall Teleconference on the second Tuesday of each month following the release of CDC's Vital Signs report. These monthly reports offer recent data and calls to action for important public health topics.
Each month's teleconference provides a forum for you, our nation's health officials, to broaden the conversation, build momentum, and ensure active implementation of evidence-based, effective programs within the public health areas covered by Vital Signs. Each teleconference features lessons learned and success stories from the state, tribal, local or territorial perspective.
We know you are busy and your time is valuable, so we are working hard to make these calls relevant and useful to you in your work to protect and improve the health of the public.
