Building the community health improvement plan – an important community tool

A community is defined as, “a group of people living in the same place.” But what makes a community desirable to its members? The answer to that question, in part, can be found in the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Yet, most are not familiar with the CHIP and what it means to the community.
