People. Providers. Programs. Policies.
The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) has been finalized!
In early 2015, community health advocates began a strategic planning process to improve the health of individuals in Sedgwick County. The CHIP summarizes results of a 2015 Community Health Assessment (CHA) designed to evaluate health needs for Sedgwick County residents. The CHIP also details the methods and findings from a 2016 community engagement process to identify priority health needs and to develop goals and strategies for health improvement in Sedgwick County.

Actively Supporting Your Health
**Health ICT team members envision a community wholly committed to wellness through access to healthy food, lifestyle behavior change classes and environments that encourage physical activity. Health ICT also coordinates with local health care providers to empower patients to take an active role in their care. Ultimately, Health ICT seeks to create a sustainable support system outside clinic walls to help patients achieve wellness and prevent chronic disease. Health ICT is an affiliate of the Medical Society of Sedgwick County.
