Purpose

The CHA/CHIP Community of Practice will:

  • Support local public health departments throughout the entire assessment and planning process
  • Foster learning about best practices around community health assessment and planning
  • Serve as a statewide peer network to encourage troubleshooting, resource and knowledge sharing related to assessment and planning

 

Format

MDH will hold webinars every other month on a variety of topics related to the community health assessment and the community health improvement plan. These webinars will alternate months with the QI Community of Practice.

In 2018, the CHA-CHIP Community of Practice met in June, August, October, and December.
