The Future of Public Health report, published in 1988, by the Institute of Medicine, highlighted emerging issues and questioned health departments’ infrastructures and capacity to respond. The report revealed a public health system in disarray. Over the years, public health has evolved, and many health concerns have been addressed. Today Public Health 3.0 is positively informing public health practice. South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) Upstate Public Health Region and Tennessee Department of Health have both embraced the Public Health 3.0 practice era. This presentation will discuss lessons learned by each of these states and how minor adjustments can lead to stronger cross-sectoral community partnerships.

• Understand the subtle differences between the roles of Chief Health Strategist and Chief Health Ambassador in Tennessee Department of Health
