St. Clair County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) / Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The St. Clair County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) and Community Health Needs Assessment Summary (CHNA) are posted on our Statistics and Data page under Community Health Assessment Profiles. These reports produce comprehensive health data with a purpose to generate a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) and look at future considerations of how/what funding to use for all public and private groups that identify health as a priority area. The (CHIP) process has officially begun and is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of community health assessment activities and the community health improvement process. We will work to define the vision for the health of a community; set priorities; coordinate & target resources; develop policy & define actions; and address strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & challenges. This process will be jointly facilitated by the St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission and Health Department.

State, National Public Health Leaders Announce “I Vaccinate”

State and national public health experts, physicians, hospitals, and a private foundation launched the “I Vaccinate” campaign to help parents protect their children from serious vaccine-preventable diseases that still pose a risk in Michigan communities.

I Vaccinate, designed with input from Michigan mothers, provides the facts parents need to make informed decisions about vaccinations. Most parents today have never seen first-hand the devastating consequences that vaccine-preventable diseases have on a child, a family, or community. Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases.
