Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
The 2012-2016 Kane County Community Health Improvement Plan reflects the understanding that the quality of the communities where we live, work, and play is as important to achieving good health as going to the doctor for regular checkups, proper nutrition, and adequate physical activity. There are many factors that affect our health and have a tremendous influence on health outcomes. The physical environment, social and economic factors, and clinical care all play a role in an individual’s health and are all incorporated into the plan.
