The Healthy Klamath coalition members are excited to hear from residents of Klamath County regarding the draft community health improvement plan. In an effort to help citizens of Klamath County receive the services and support they need regarding health topics and personal health concerns, the coalition produces a community health assessment and a community health improvement plan every four years.
Healthy Klamath is an initiative that includes not only Sky Lakes Medical Center, Klamath County Public Health, Cascade Health Alliance, and Klamath Health Partnership, but numerous other organizations that want local people to be well throughout their lives. Providing feedback on the draft plan will result in information being shared with 40 local groups and businesses.
The document can be found online at http://www.healthyklamath.org/content/sites/klamath/2019_Community_Health_Improvement_Plan_15Jul19_.pdf . or klamathcounty.org. Residents are also welcome to call 541.882.8846 to request a paper copy from Public Health. The deadline for comments is August 10.
