Wood County health partners, led by Wood County Health Department and Wood County Hospital, invite county residents to learn about the 2022-25 Community Health Improvement Plan and opportunities to improve health in Wood County by attending one of several community meetings held in towns and villages across the county.

Meetings will be held in the following locations:

• Wood County District Public Library, 251 N. Main St., Bowling Green – Dec. 12, 6-7 p.m.

The Community Health Improvement Plan is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems and make sustainable improvements in the health and well-being of all people in Wood County. It is based on the results of the Community Health Assessment that was conducted in 2021, a data-driven examination of the health of adults, youth and children who live in Wood County.

The health priorities identified for the CHIP reflect critical steps for improving health in Wood County and were selected through a series of facilitated workshops attended by leaders from various local organizations that impact community health.

At these meetings, attendees will learn about the most important health issues impacting Wood County residents, how CHIP priorities were chosen, and organizations that will be involved in developing plans to drive sustainable improvements in those areas.

Attendees will also learn about opportunities to get involved in efforts to make a positive impact on the health of our community.
