Supervisors approved a $45,000 project to improve the well-being of residents in cooperation with the state.
The money will be used to conduct a community health assessment and develop a community health improvement plan.
County Health Director Michael O’Driscoll explained the Community Health Assessment will collect data to educate and mobilize communities and develop priorities to improve health.
The final version of the work plan is to be completed by June 16, with the actual assessment work completed by Sept. 30, 2012.
The health improvement plan will be a long-term, systematic plan to address issues identified in the assessment. The improvement plan is to be completed by March 30, 2013.
