The work of the AAG's Health Departments Committee (HDC) is featured in this panel. The committee focuses on: (1) helping, to the extent possible, departments that come to the AAG for assistance in the face of potential threats, and (2) serving as a resource for departments looking for suggestions of individuals who might serve as effective reviewers. The role of the committee is gradually expanding to: 1) expand its data collection to recognize areas of risk for individual departments and for the discipline as a whole; 2) catalog the best practices of successful departments and continue to support Healthy Department Workshops; 3) liaise with other groups interested in geography education; and 4) identify activities the AAG can perform on behalf of departments generally, such as creating more relevant promotional materials and providing training for at-risk departments.
