|Community Health Plan|
This document is the Portage County Health Plan for 2005- 2010. The development of this plan is a statutory requirement of the Department of Health and Family Services. However, the implementation of this plan is the responsibility of all citizens of Portage County.
This plan is the result of a community assessment process that brought together a broad representation of Portage County constituents; it is meant to be used as a guide by anyone in the community interested in improving the health of Portage County citizens.
A plan is most valuable if action is taken, improvement is measured, and a new health status is celebrated. Community change and health improvement is a laborious process that requires dedication and commitment.
We wish to thank all members of the Community Assessment Team whose efforts and wisdom are culminated in this document. We invite all Portage County citizens to use this plan to improve individual, family and community health. It is our hope that this document will be used as a reference and/or foundation for many efforts within our community.
Anyone wishing to participate in action teams addressing the health priorities identified in this document can contact the Health Officer at Portage County Health and Human Services (715) 345-5350.
