Coos Healthier Together (CHT) is a coalition of community organizations and advocates who promote healthy behaviors and work toward a healthier Coos County. The coalition was created to implement the 2019-2022 Coos County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
The CHIP is a community-level plan to improve the health of individuals, families and the community at large. It is based on, and compliments, the 2018 Community Health Assessment (CHA) which identified significant health needs facing the community.
In the fall of 2019, CHT collaborators reviewed CHA data and established 4 focus areas that reflected 9 prioritized areas of concern.
Recognizing that significant work is already being done in many of the priority areas, CHT opted to focus on 2 priority areas annually. This gives the coalition a narrow focus on which to make a significant impact.
For 2020, the 2 priority areas for CHT focus include Food & Nutrition and Coordination, Collaboration & Communication (C3).
