A Community Approach to Better Health
Participation, Engagement and Empowerment are the central themes for success.

Identify – we are currently gathering local data and health information in order to create a comprehensive snapshot of our health and quality of life. Community members will be asked to participate in a survey and several focus groups around the county to give input about health concerns and strengths.

Prioritize -The entire community is invited to engage in a process to look at the data gathered in the assessment phase to determine priorities. The organizing phase was initiated in early 2011 through presentations at several local boards.

Act – The partnership will develop a coordinated action plan to empower residents In Geauga County to play a role in addressing the health priorities that will be identified in the assessment phase.

Please participate. All our voices matter.
