The goal of performance management is to improve the way PPHD operates, in terms of improved health outcomes, efficiency in operations, and fiscal management. The performance management system is monitored by the performance management coordinator, health director, and Leadership Team.

We feel it is an important step for the County to model good health to the community. We are working diligently to provide tobacco-free support and resources to staff and visitors as we go tobacco-free.

NDPP provided the framework I needed to succeed in losing 50+ pounds and keep it off for over 3 years. My coach was respectful, confidential, supportive, and knowledgeable. She encouraged us to be kinder to ourselves and recognize I needed to change my mental outlook about food. I actually ate more than before in the program! Logging my food, activity, and water was essential, as was weighing in. Setting small goals made them more attainable, which prompted me to keep going.Paula | Panhandle NDPP Participant
