Cobb & Douglas Public Health (CDPH) is pleased to announce the release of its 2015 Annual Report. The report offers an overview of the agency’s financial and non-financial performance, highlights several key achievements and provides the health status of the community.
Did you know that CDPH became the first public health agency in Georgia to achieve national accreditation? Or that CDPH was a key partner to address issues related to the global Ebola Outbreak in 2015? Or that CDPH recently opened three new sites to serve almost 20,000 pregnant women and children through our WIC Nutrition Program? These achievements and others are covered in this annual report, including information about CDPH programs and services, client success stories, and health outcomes linked to the Community Health Improvement Plans of both the Cobb2020 and Live Healthy Douglas Health Partnerships.
“This report reflects the work the health district has done throughout the year to improve the overall health of the community,” said Dr. Jack Kennedy, District Health Director. “It offers insight into trends in chronic and infectious diseases, children’s health issues and leading causes of death and illness affecting the residents of Cobb and Douglas counties. It also highlights the work CDPH did to mobilize and strengthen community partnerships, and it demonstrates that CDPH is continuously working to improve the quality of the services our staff delivers.”
