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. The community health improvement plan – or CHIP – will outline how all the organizations that influence health in Jefferson County will work together over the next 5 years to fight our county’s toughest health battles.
We are happy to release Jefferson County’s Preliminary Community Health Improvement Plan for 2014. Honoring the complexity of community health planning, this report outlines the steps the Healthy People Healthy Places Jeffco initiative will take over the coming months to develop a robust multi-year action plan to increase access to healthy food and physical activity in our County.
We also gathered input from community members and professionals through community engagement meetings and an online survey and 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 with a focus on Latino children. 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, with a focus on Latino children) 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 continuing to gather input from the public and our partners to develop and implement a CHIP that will help Jeffco residents live longer, happier and meaningful lives.
