Over the next three months, goals and action steps will be created by local workgroups. Parnership for a Healthier Nassau is seeking new members for the workgroups. New goals related to the top five issues will be included in the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) which is scheduled to launch in January 2019.
Attached is a Message from the Florida Department of Health Nassau which explains more about this process and the overall efforts of Partnership for a Healthier Nassau.
