What we do

Working Together toward a Healthier Licking County

  Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is a strategic approach to community health improvement. This  tool helps communities seek to achieve optimal health by identifying and using their resources wisely, taking into account their unique circumstances and needs, and forming effective partnerships for strategic action. MAPP will lead to the development and implementation of a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
