Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan

Community Health Assessment

Community Health Improvement Plan 
A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a long-term, systematic effort to address health issues based on the results of assessment activities and the community health improvement process. This plan is used by public health in collaboration with community partners, to set priorities and coordinate and target resources.  A CHIP is critical for developing policies and defining actions to promote health.  It defines the vision for the health of the community. 

Based on the 2011 community health assessment , the CHIP document “Healthiest Calumet County Everyone Living Better, Longer” was created and two health priorities were selected for improvement.    


Based on the 2015 Community Health Assessment, the Calumet County CHIP is being updated. It will be posted to this page when it is available.  

Healthiest Calumet County
The Healthiest Calumet County Community Health Improvement Initiative was started by the Calumet County Health Division in 2012. The Healthiest Calumet County steering committee consists of representatives from public health, local health care agencies, schools, businesses, and the community that work together to help everyone live better and longer.

Community action teams have been created to address the health priorities identified by the community health assessments. Currently, two action teams are addressing the following health issues:

1. Physical Activity and Nutrition - U-CAN (Calumet Activity and Nutrition)  U-CAN is a physical activity and nutrition coalition whose goal is to empower Calumet County residents to build and embrace healthy lifestyles through education and wellness opportunities. 

For more information on U-CAN, email the health division at  or call 920-849-1432.  Find us on Facebook at U-CAN(Calumet County Activity and Nutrition Coalition) or Twitter  @calumetUCAN.  


2.  Excessive Drinking and Other Substance Misuse- (REACH Reducing Excessive Alcohol Consumption for Health).The goal of REACH is to reduce risky and unhealthy alcohol and other substance use to protect the health, safety, and quality of life for all, especially children.  


3. Mental Health- UCAN and REACH both incorporate mental health concerns into their action plans.
