Jefferson County Seeks Public Input for Health Improvement Plan

Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH), in partnership with the Jefferson County Board of Health, Jefferson County Health Council and numerous community partners, wants your input as we choose priorities for our community health improvement plan. The community health improvement plan – or CHIP – will outline how all the organizations that influence health in Jefferson County will work together over the next 5 years to fight our county’s toughest health battles. The process relies on current health data as well as community input to target our health priorities and identify strategies that have been proven to make a difference.
