Strengthening Collaboration Among Local Public Health Partners
In 2010–11, the 20 member organizations of the St. Clair County Health Care Commission developed 5-year community health plans with measurable outcome and impact objectives to reduce the significantly high prevalence of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke in St. Clair County. Reducing these outcomes will not only require the “Art of the Long View” but an unprecedented commitment to implement collaborative, evidence-based intervention strategies, establishing policies and building environments to address the underlying behaviors of poor diet and inactivity that increase the risk of premature illness and death caused by these preventable conditions. The following aims and measureable objectives were identified in this Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process.
AIM 1: Increase the capacity of schools to provide a learning environment that supports healthy behavior and discourages health risk behavior for children and adolescents.
OBJECTIVE 1: By 2016, 25 schools will have fully functional Wellness Councils that can facilitate a Coordinated School Health approach for students, families, and faculty.
AIM 2: Increase the capacity of neighborhoods and communities in St. Clair County to provide a safe environment for school-age children to travel actively to and from school.
OBJECTIVE 2: By 2016, a total of 15 schools in St. Clair County will have a sustainable Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program with an operational travel plan that demonstrates a 10% increase in participation each year.
AIM 3: Increase the capacity of St. Clair County municipal leaders and city planners to create an active transportation network for its 29 incorporated towns and 22 townships.
OBJECTIVE 3: By 2016, St. Clair County will develop a Bicycle, Pedestrian, Trails and Greenway Master Plan, and 8 to 10 cities will actively engage in implementing a progressive Complete Streets (CS) Campaign for their communities.
