Community Health Improvement Plan Priorities Selected!
We have recently completed our Community Engagement and Prioritization Phase of the Community Health Improvement Plan! We'd like to thank all of the community members that provided input and to our Be Healthy Denver Steering Committee. The two priority issues are:
- Access to Care, including Behavioral Health
- Healthy Eating and Active Living
We arrived at these two priorities after taking community voices into account from six community meetings, two focus groups, an online survey, and several presentations. These priorities reflect that our surroundings are important determinants of health and that local communities can take specific steps to improve health.
Be Healthy Denver’s next step will be to convene task forces and work groups to develop strategies that will make progress on these health issues.
To review the steps that we've taken in the Community Health Improvement Plan during 2012, please read our CHIP document. Additionally, the Executive Summary contains a synopsis of our findings.
