Community Health Improvement Plan

The Community Health Council has identified four priority health issues for Knox County in the coming years: mental health, opioid abuse, tobacco use, and access to safe parks, greenways, and sidewalks.

The Community Health Improvement Plan is a roadmap to improvement in these priority health issues.

Partner organizations are currently implementing action plans based on the Community Health Improvement Plan to move the needle in these important areas.

New in April 2017: See highlights from partner organizations' work on the Plan!
