    "The process of developing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services required input from stakeholders representing all areas of environmental public health. The stakeholders included officials from nongovernmental environmental public health organizations; state, territorial, and local health agencies; tribal governments; undergraduate- and graduate-level environmental health and public health academic programs; and several federal agencies. CDC's National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) led and facilitated the process. NCEH formed an internal steering committee with the initial task of identifying stakeholders who were interested in and committed to delivering environmental public health services. The committee was tasked to create issue papers on the following critical environmental public health areas: capacity building, research, leadership, communication and marketing, workforce, and strategic partners. The committee identified approximately 150 agencies and organizations from the public health practice community, academic community, advocacy organizations, communities with special interests, and CDC and other federal agencies. From this list, NCEH invited 31 members that represented a cross section of the critical environmental public health areas to form an official External Partners Work Group. The External Partners Work Group reviewed the issue papers prepared by the internal steering committee on the critical environmental public health areas. The internal steering committee hosted a national teleconference and a 2-day meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, to facilitate and encourage comments and dialogue from the work group. At this meeting, the work group members constructed concrete goals and objectives to accompany the issue papers on the critical environmental public health areas. The issue papers, goals, and objectives were translated into A National Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services and then circulated to all 150 stakeholders for review. After integrating their comments, the committee circulated a second draft, and additional changes to the plan were discussed and incorporated. A National Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services is a working document that will be modified over time. The strategy includes six goals, each of which has several objectives. The next step will be to identify resources; create a time line for accomplishing objectives; and organize, prioritize, and implement the plan's activities" - p. vii
