Community members can set the agenda on Madison County’s health for the future.
Every five years, the Madison County Health Department asks local community members to provide their thoughts and opinions about the level of health experienced in our community. The goal is to establish a five-year strategic Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to address top concerns regarding health issues.
The plan happens in three phases: gathering information, analyzing that information, and setting priorities for specific measurable actions, according to a release sent out by the department.
Phase one has been accomplished. People in Madison County participated in a survey in Fall 2019. A partnership between the health department and the EKU Department of Health Promotion and Administration combined the efforts of faculty, staff, and students to provide a scientific survey tool.
The results of the survey and other local data are accessible online at bit.ly/MCHDCHASurvey. After viewing the presentation,
