Community Health Improvement Process

Brown County and De Pere Health Departments, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Division of Public Health, healthcare networks, and the Brown County United Way, formed a Steering Committee to work with community partners to identify health concerns for improvement in Brown County and De Pere. The identified priorities selected were: adequate, appropriate, and safe food and nutrition; oral health; mental health and unhealthy alcohol and drug use. Action teams of community members have been formed and led by area health care networks to plan improvements over the next 3 years.
