Over 760 people participated in the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan process.  Priority areas were selected through review of data, surveys, and focus groups.  Strategies were selected from evidence based practices, policies and programs, and wherever possible linked with state plan.

The Panhandle Community Health Improvement Plan has been written to be implemented across all sectors of our communities. Local governments, hospitals and health systems, educational institutions, economic development, service organizations, businesses, agencies, volunteer groups, mental and behavioral health systems, faith communities, children, youth, families, and seniors are all considered part of the Local Public Health System.
