The 2016 Health of Chatham Report is now available online and at the Chatham County Public Health Department in both English and Spanish.
The annual report provides updates on progress and status of the health priorities identified in the 2014 Community Health Assessment: obesity, access to mental health services, and access to healthcare. Many efforts around these priority areas are led by the Chatham Health Alliance, which has played an active role in improving health in Chatham since its inception in March 2015.
Additional topics in the report include the Chatham County tobacco-free grounds policy, a new partnership between the Health Department and Piedmont Health Services, and mosquito and tick-borne illness prevention efforts.
