Our Mission

Improve Community Health Through Leadership, Education and Engagement

Our Vision

Working Together for a Healthy Community

Our Framework

The Grant County Community Health Improvement Coalition (CHIC) is focused on addressing health disparities to improve health and wellness in our community; recognizing the need for a trauma informed approach to inclusion, diversity and equity.  We work in close collaboration with organizations from all sectors of the community: government agencies, hospitals, the public school system, higher education, for-profit and non-profit businesses and providers of mental, somatic and oral health services.

Based on the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment, the coalition developed an action plan which identified top priorities, measurements and strategies for strengthening prevention, protective factors and risk reduction for citizens of Grant County.
