Intro Blog for Promising Practices Conference
Robin Mayo, MPH, RN is the Community Partnership Director for the Piscataquis Public Health Council, a Local Healthy Maine Partnership. Our program has been in existance since 2001 as a result of the Master Tobacco Settlement funds. We have focused our efforts on the three major risk factors associated with chronic disease – poor nutrition, lack of physical activity, and tobacco use. We focus on policy and environmental changes.
