COVID Capacity Series

If you work in public health, this year has required you and your valued colleagues to work tirelessly, serving fellow Kansans like never before. In partnership with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the WSU Community Engagement Institute invites you to attend the Kansas COVID-19 Capacity Series.

This series is primarily designed for Kansas governmental public health staff, but other partners in public health are invited to join!

Please use the following links to register for each session you would like to attend. There is no deadline to register. Please contact Jessica Smith at jessica.smith@wichita.edu with any questions or comments.

This is a free three-part series. Session topics will include setting boundaries & expectations, the zone of helpfulness, and Kansas public health jurisdictions and authorities as they relate to COVID-19. For session descriptions, please click on individual registration links.
