Evaluating the Survive and Thrive program for leadership development of local health officials

This grant supports a mixed-methods evaluation of Survive and Thrive: Roadmap for New Local Health Officials, a leadership-development program designed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to build the leadership capacity of new and aspiring local health officials. The Center for Community Health and Evaluation (CCHE) at the Group Health Cooperative will conduct the evaluation. Its major aims will include assessing implementation processes, outcomes and potential impact, and identifying areas for improving program design. Deliverables for the evaluation will be: (1) planning activities, including a stakeholder-engagement plan, program logic model, and dissemination plan; (2) management of an evaluation advisory group; (3) development of data-collection tools, including survey instruments, interview protocols, and dashboards; (4) data collection, analysis and synthesis; and (5) production of and a dissemination plan for the evaluation products, which may include but are not limited to quarterly reporting memos, annual reports, presentation slides, tweetable facts, and a journal publication. CCHE will conduct the evaluation with collaborative input from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; RWJF's funding partner, de Beaumont Foundation (dBF); and program staff at NACCHO.
