Our Mission
Assess and impact the priority health needs by facilitating community collaboration.

Our Vision
A community with accessible resources which support healthy lifestyle choices where people live, learn, work, and play.

What is Healthy Oconto County?
The purpose of Healthy Oconto County is to mobilize people, organizations and stakeholders in our county to collaboratively address issues that impact health. The ultimate goal is to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan based upon the assessment to measurably improve the health of Oconto County residents.


What is a Community Health Assessment?
The Community Health Assessment is a process of determining priority health focus areas. A group of stakeholders review county, region and state data on demographics, injury and health behavior, and the environment. Stakeholders identify needs, strengths and community resources already in place.


What is a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)?
The Community Health Improvement Plan organizes the community health assessment data into a strategic plan to address the priority needs of the community by creating long-term goals and measurable outcomes.
