Putting Health Equity Front and Center in Community Health Improvement by Empowering, Listening to, and Respecting Community Voices
In 2012 the City of Worcester released the first Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), with the goal of making Worcester the Healthiest City in the Healthiest Region in the Commonwealth by 2020. Following tremendous success and leveraging lessons learned the Worcester Division of Public health, in collaboration with the Coalition for a Greater Healthy Worcester, UMass Memorial and Fallon Health released the 2016 CHIP, with the single goal of promoting health equity. During this session we will describe the comprehensive needs assessment process, research tools, long-term community engagement strategies and implementation practices that have created a community-driven movement across sectors to promote health equity.
