Community Health Assessment & Improvement Plan
In 2016, Cobb & Douglas Public Health, along with Kennesaw State University, Cobb2020 and Live Healthy Douglas, conducted our second thorough Community Health Assessment (CHA) to determine the most current leading community health issues, resident priorities, and community resources. Information collected from this assessment and other community health needs assessments influenced the development of this 2017-2021 Cobb & Douglas Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), which was published in October 2017. The 2017-2021 CHIP focuses on key priorities to improve the health and well-being for all who work, live, learn or play in our community. The CHIP aligns with national and state priorities, applies a health equity lens and continues to focus on the impact of policy, systems and environmental (PSE) change. Acknowledging the uniqueness of our two counties, the 2017-2021 CHIP is organized by county, the two strategic priorities and county-specific goals and strategies.
Annual progress reports for the 2017 CHA and 2018 CHIP are listed below:
