Community Health Improvement Process

"Beyond Health":Community Improvement Process(CHIP)



In November 2014, the CHIP Steering Committee brought together community stakeholders to review and discuss community health data based on the health focus areas cited in Healthiest Wisconsin 2020. The community stakeholders provided their knowledge and expertise in various Healthiest Wisconsin 2020 focus areas and assessed the community's needs and opportunities. After these stakeholders were presented with the community health assessment data, they were given the opportunity to select health priority needs for Brown County.

Four health priorities were identified at the 2014 Community Health Needs Assessment Summit. They were selected from the healthiest Wisconsin 2020 health focus areas. Brown County's four health priorities are:

  • Alcohol misuse
  • Oral health
  • Mental health
  • Adequate, appropriate, and safe nutrition

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) implementation committees are a partnership among individuals, families, and organizations dedicated to improving the health of Brown County. The four CHIP implementation committees are comprised of diverse community members who will meet regularly to develop and implement a health plan with goals and objectives for each priority focus area.

The CHIP Steering Committee will continue to meet and review the progress of the implementation teams. The newly revised health improvement plan will be published early in 2015. To obtain a copy, please contact the Brown County or De Pere Health Departments.
