Healthy Delaware County

Delaware Public Health District – Recruiting New Coalition Members

Delaware Public Health District is looking for community members who are invested in the health of Delaware County residents, and would like to participate in a community coalition, The Partnership for a Healthy Delaware County. The Partnership is a community coalition housed within the Health District and chaired by community leaders, Fara Waugh (Executive Director, SourcePoint) and Chris Fink (Associate Professor of Health & Human Kinetics, OWU).

The Partnership vision is to create a community where all sectors of the county work together to provide opportunities for complete health and well-being. The coalition meets quarterly to plan, implement & evaluate Delaware County’s community health assessment (CHA) and community health improvement plan (CHIP) process. The CHA/CHIP process allows Partnership members to improve population health among all ages. Current coalition members include participants from all sectors of the County including:

  • Community Members
  • Faith-Based
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • EMS/Fire/Police
  • Community Organizations & Non-Governmental Organizations
  • Business

Starting in May, The Partnership will be kicking off a new community health assessment cycle, allowing members of The Partnership to review the most recent health data collected from Delaware County residents and prioritize the most pressing health issues facing our County. The Health District will be hosting a community data release event on May 18, 2022, at 8:30am (location TBD) which will highlight the findings from the most recent health survey results, collected from anonymous Delaware County residents this past fall.
