The work of the HIO CC has culminated in the completion of a Community Action Plan including goals, objectives and strategies to address physical activity, nutrition, tobacco use, and depression in Jackson County. The Plan is based on assessment and data-driven processes, as well as input from over 30 representatives from local health and human service agencies, and over 100 community stakeholders.
