The Chatham Health Alliance is a collaborative of local professionals and residents working together to improve health in Chatham County. The purpose of the Alliance is to bring both traditional and nontraditional partners together to work on issues affecting health in Chatham County, with a focus on the health priorities identified in the Community Health Assessment. Members of the Alliance strive to share resources and work together to enhance existing efforts and achieve a greater collective impact than we would individually. We use a systems approach of education, incentives, and policy tools to effect holistic change for the whole person, whole family, and whole community.
The Alliance was formed in early 2015 and is currently finalizing action plans to address Chatham County's health priorities from the 2014 Community Health Assessment: Obesity, Access to Mental Health Services, and Access to Healthcare.
If you have questions or would like to join the Chatham Health Alliance, please contact Sarah Weller at 919-545-8443 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
