Local health departments are charged with the role and responsibility to carry out a community health improvement process. Since 1993, Wisconsin statutes have required communities throughout Wisconsin to develop and implement local health plans to address health conditions impacting their residents. This process has been referred to as the "Community Health Improvement Process" (CHIP), named in part for the resulting health status changes in a community and the people that live there.
Healthy Marathon County is our vehicle for impacting Marathon County residents’ health through organizational and community involvement. Healthy Marathon County works in partnership with the Marathon County Health Department. Together, we gather health-related data, determine priority health issues, develop plans to address health priorities, garner community resources, and evaluate our impacts in creating a healthy community.
