Upon completion of the course, participants will have a plan for developing their next CHIP. This content is aligned with PHAB (Links to an external site.) Standard 5.2 (Links to an external site.)Conduct a comprehensive planning process resulting in a Tribal/state/community health improvement plan and Reaccreditation Measure 5.3 (Links to an external site.)The health department encourages and participates in community collaborative implementation of the community health improvement plan and participates in its revision as community public health priorities are addressed and revised. While it is preferable to register for and participate in all 3 sessions, participants do not need to attend all sessions in order to receive CE for a given webinar.

This second webinar in the 3-part series will: address identifying community health priorities, including refining your priorities; discuss considerations for your CHIP such as the importance of using the SDOH to guide your CHIP development; and will include a discussion of virtual meeting considerations and tools.
