Hundreds of local agencies and community members have formed a partnership called Together We Can! Healthy Living in Butte County. The partnership's work has produced a written countywide Community Health Assessment (CHA), which describes the county's health status, defines areas for improvement and identifies assets that can be mobilized to improve health for everyone in Butte County.
Utilizing the results from the CHA, Together We Can! is now implementing a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHIP outlines the agreed upon action steps to address the CHA priority health issues and the parties responsible for implementing those steps. The CHIP is designed to guide community-wide efforts to reduce health disparities and improve the health of Butte County residents. It provides an umbrella under which the efforts of numerous organizations, groups, and individuals can be aligned around three priority health areas, established by community members and stakeholders at the conclusion of the CHA process: 1. Substance Abuse 2. Socioeconomic Factors that Influence Health 3. Chronic Disease

Please complete this brief survey to provide your feedback and recommendations related to the CHIP. The partnership will review all responses for possible revisions or to include additional information within the document.

If you have any questions or would like to become involved in the partnership, please contact Gene Azparren at (530) 538-7009 or
