Community Health Plan:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines healthy communities as “A community that is continuously creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential.”

This plan is a result of the collaboration of community partners to create a tool for community organizations, local government, businesses, and citizens to take action to create a “Healthier Taylor County” for everyone who lives in our community.
