Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH), in collaboration with the Jefferson County Board of Health, Jefferson County Health Council and numerous community partners, organizations and government agencies is in the process of developing and implementing a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHIP outlines how organizations that influence health in Jefferson County will work together over the next 5 years to fight our county’s toughest health battles. In order to implement the plan, the Jeffco Community Health Improvement Network was established in 2015. The Network is a group of multi-disciplinary coalitions in Jefferson County working together to increase physical activity, healthy eating and psychosocial well-being among low-income families with children 0-18. For more information on the Network and the coalitions, please visit the Healthy People, Healthy Places Jeffco website.
We gathered input from community members and professionals about the County's greatest health concerns through community engagement meetings and an online survey. As a result, we selected physical inactivity, poor diet and psychosocial stressors as the highest priority areas to address in the County. Physical activity and healthy eating work groups were then formed and identified our target population as low-income households with children ages 0-18. View the complete Community Health Assessment.
With our priorities selected (physical inactivity, poor diet and psychosocial stressors) and our target population selected (low-income households with children ages 0 to 18) Healthy People, Healthy Places Jeffco has paved the way for the development and implemention of strategies that all of our partners can focus on to create a healthier Jefferson County. We look forward to continually gathering input from the public and our partners to develop and implement a CHIP that will help Jeffco residents live longer, happier and more meaningful lives.
