Tell Us How to Make Kent County Healthy

Healthy Kent is introducing a community-driven process to determine the health concerns of residents throughout Kent County. The next step in providing the best public health access and opportunities is called Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships, or MAPP. This framework is what Healthy Kent will use to implement a community-wide strategic planning process to improve health outcomes in Kent County.

MAPP is working to help communities improve health and quality of life. To reach these goals, we must take a community-wide and community-driven approach to strategic planning. Using the MAPP process, members of Healthy Kent believe it can help communities achieve optimal health. The group will work to identify and use existing resources wisely, consider each community's unique circumstances and needs, and form effective partnerships for strategic action. The most successful efforts are those where people share a commitment to - and have a role in - the community's health and overall well-being.

As community partners, your input is crucial to the success of this project. We encourage you to participate and to present the issues you feel are concerns at community meetings throughout eight predetermined regions.
