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.
Attendees of the October 5 Community Health Workshop selected affordable housing, poverty, and mental health as the three topic areas for the 2020-2025 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Community members brainstormed solutions to these challenges in a series of meetings in early November. Check back here for periodic updates on the CHIP’s development, including opportunities to be involved.
If you have questions about the CHIP or community health, contact Natalie Talis.
