Community Health Improvement Partnership Of Morrow County (MCCHIP) Share This OHSU Content

WHAT IS MCCHIP?

An alliance between health care providers and the community developing and implementing strategies to improve the local health care system and health status of area residents.

Why is it Important for Morrow County?

Health improvement is both an individual and health system activity. The health of area residents is determined by both individual health behaviors and lifestyles and the availability and accessibility of the appropriate health resources.

Mission

The CHIP of Morrow County will promote community-driven engagement, education and solutions to improve the health and well-being of people, who live, work and play in Morrow County.

Vision

Within the next 5 years, CHIP will have helped to create a more healthful Morrow County by working collaboratively through active community participation to develop local innovations to strengthen and sustain our health care system, promote health and wellness, facilitate communication and coordination between health care providers and advance community outreach efforts.

Meeting Schedule

First Wednesdays of the months of February, May, August and November
9:00 – 10:30 a.m.
