Healthy Montgomery Seeks Community Comment on Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, May 23, 2017

The Healthy Montgomery Steering Committee invites residents to review and make comments on the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  The CHIP provides a summary of priorities that will guide the work of Healthy Montgomery for the next three years.  Healthy Montgomery, the County’s Community Health Improvement Process, was launched in June 2009, and is an ongoing effort that brings together a broad range of individuals representing County government agencies, the five community hospitals, minority health programs/initiatives, advocacy groups, academic institutions and the health insurance community to develop action plans to improve the health and well-being of all Montgomery County residents, especially groups most at risk for poor health.


Residents are asked to provide comments by Friday, June 30, 2017.  A copy of the report and the feedback survey can be found online at HealthyMontgomery.Org.

 

Healthy Montgomery’s website is a one-stop online source for population-based data and information about community health and the social and environmental determinants of health. The website provides data and information on more than 90 topics related to the health and well-being of the community and its residents.  Data on the website assists County policy makers and partners in identifying key priority areas and helps guide decisions about strategies to meet various needs.
