Frederick County Local Health Improvement Process - Turning Priorities Into Action!
A Local Health Improvement Plan (LHIP) is more than just a document. It provides a framework for accountability, local action, and public engagement to advance the health of Frederick County residents. A positive health status provides the foundation for a thriving community and economy. Through the LHIP, Frederick County will support the attainment of goals of Maryland's State Health Improvement Plan.
After releasing the 2016 Frederick County Health Assessment (CHA), a Priority Setting Summit was held on September 13, 2016. Community members and partners came together to review local data. The group of 100+ people brainstormed potential priorities for local health improvement and then voted for their top priorities to focus on for the next three years. The three priorities identified are listed below.
