Florida HealthProtocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health (PACE EH)
What is PACE-EH?
The Bureau of Environmental Health has adopted the National Association of City and County Health Officials' (NACCHO) Protocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health - PACE EH.
With the support of the Bureau of Environmental Health, county health departments work with their communities and address environmental health concerns.
Collectively, the county health departments across Florida who have implemented PACE EH in communities have become a national model and provide evidence that communities identify built environment and urban planning issues as environmental health issues.
All projects are designed to open the lines of communication between the department's county health departments and their affected communities, using the PACE EH concept and / or methodology.
