The Youngstown City Health District (YCHD) is devoted to improving the health of our residents. Since 2010, YCHD has collaborated with more than 30 community partners representing the Mahoning Valley region to conduct community health assessments, which inform community health priorities outlined in our community health improvement plan (CHIP). Over the years, YCHD and its partners have refreshed CHA data and tracked the completion of CHIP goals. Health outcome data analyzed in 2016, along with community input, revealed stark disparities among specific populations within our community. In response, a new “Health Inequities” priority was added to the 2017 CHIP with strategies which will be implemented under the leadership of YCHD’s Office of Minority Health.
