Our Team Brings Information to You
Reaching YOU where YOU ARE
When you see us with flyers, we are here to share what's happening in our community.
Determining Our Areas of Focus
The Community Health Assessment (CHA) and the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) are the result of a collective work of Kern County Public Health staff, community partners, and community members – like you. The CHA helps us learn from our community about all areas of health. We ask questions about access, challenges, and thoughts on what is needed to make their community’s health better. We also gather Kern health data and compare it to the state. Then, we bring together a group of partners and community members to share what we have learned. They help us determine where to focus our work in the three-year plan called the CHIP and how they can help us along the way. This plan will help us to meet the needs of our community and improve community health together.
