Building a Healthier Alexandria Together
All Alexandrians should have the opportunity to live their healthiest life.
You have an important role in making that vision a reality.
Alexandria Health Department and the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria are facilitating the development of a 2020-2025 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). This community-centered plan has equity at its core and answers the question:
What collective actions and structural changes do we need to eliminate differences in health outcomes?
Learn more about the timing and process below.
Catch up on CHIP here:
- Review their solutions and the resulting strategies here.
- Community member CHIP workgroups scored the strategies using equity, community acceptability, and impact as criteria. Learn more about the scoring process here.
- The CHIP workgroups narrowed the scored strategies further and landed on a top list per topic area with a number of potential tactics. Review the final strategies by topic area here.
- Now, workgroup members are researching these strategies to see if they are truly feasible for Alexandria. They are also identifying champions to help implement this work.
Can you serve as a strategy co-champion or help conduct research? Email Natalie Talis here.
