Jessamine County Community Health Assessment & Improvement Plan

Jessamine County initiated our second Community Health Assessment and Improvement Planning initiative in October 2017. A series of three forums gathered feedback from community partners, surveys from community residents, and identified our top health/safety issues to be addressed in a county-wide health improvement plan. Please review our forum presentations and our 2018 Jessamine County Community Health Assessment below for more information!

    CHA/CHIP Comments


    A community health improvement plan “CHIP” is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems on the basis of the results of community health assessment activities and the community health improvement process. 

    During a consensus building activity conducted during the January 25, 2018 CHAIP forum, the following health and safety topics were identified by participants as Jessamine County’s top priority areas:

    • Chronic Disease
    • Mental Health
    • Safety
    • Substance Abuse/Drug Overdose

    The Jessamine County Healthy and Safe Communities Coalition is a collaboration of community partners and members who perform activities as outlined in the Jessamine County CHIP Workplan: 2019-2023 to help improve the status of these top priority areas.
