Notice to Readers: Department of Health and Human Services and Public Health Training Network Satellite Broadcast and Webcast

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Public Health Training Network (PHTN) will present "Steps to a HealthierUS: RFA Guidance," a live, interactive satellite broadcast and webcast on May 22, 2003, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., EST. The broadcast will describe DHHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson's "Steps to a HealthierUS (Steps)," a new prevention initiative that focuses on reducing the burden of chronic diseases and addressing the lifestyle choices that are responsible for some of the leading causes of death and disability.

The broadcast will help applicants in preparing their responses to the Request for Applications (RFA) for the Steps Program and will focus on the application process, eligibility criteria, program requirements, desired content of the applications, and how the applications will be judged. A question-and-answer session will enable participants to ask questions to panelists through toll free telephone, fax, or TTY lines. The program is designed for all potential applicants for the Steps program announcement (i.e., official state and local health departments, and federally recognized tribal governments and U.S. Territories).

Additional information about site availability, broadcast coordinates, program content, resource materials, and accessing the live broadcast/webcast is available at
