As part of our ongoing efforts to improve health outcomes across all populations in Kershaw County, LWK convened a group of county residents and leaders in March of 2019 to build a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). In that meeting, the group chose three top concerns to actively address through 2022, including access to health care, obesity, and emotional health. The CHIP is a written plan that outlines data-driven tactics for improving community health by hitting targeted goals and objectives as a team, sharing the collective resources of the community to improve efficiency and efficacy. The plan focuses on successful completion of specific steps led by action teams who meet monthly to discuss progress and work toward their goals. You can read more about the CHIP here.
