Our Health Improvement Coalition
In 2011, a group of community leaders from the areas of education, health, faith, business, non-profit, and local government sectors formed to advise WellSpan Health (formerly Summit Health), on a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which is conducted every 3 years. In 2013, this group evolved into a community collaborative -- Healthy Franklin County. We utilize a collective impact model to align resources and work together to improve the health and well-being of all Franklin county residents. Through the utilization of data, we can integrate practices and coordinate improvements that will provide collective impact, leading to positive change. Health is not just about disease or illness. We know that health depends on the mental, social and physical well-being of an individual.
Here's our current organizational chart which reflects our current priorities, task force and work groups. To learn more about our task forces, initiatives and how to get involved, contact Noel Purdy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vision Statement: To have all people of Franklin County achieve their full potential for health and well-being across the lifespan.
Mission Statement: To promote, strengthen and evaluate Franklin County’s efforts to improve the health and well-being of all people.
Leadership Advisory Committee
The leadership advisory committee helps inform the community health needs assessment process and creates strategies through a joint plan of action to address health priorities and needs. Some members of the leadership advisory committee co-chair task forces ( a + is next to each member that leads a task force).
