If you are new to MC and it seems like public health in MC is different than the county you came from that is true!

23“Stories” Unintended Pregnancy “First Trimester issues need to be addressed- alcohol, smoking, and access to primary care.”“Evaluation of current programs and their outcomes is needed.”“Mesa County rates for unintended pregnancy among teens need to address the lack of teen sexual health education and ethnic factors.”
24Data Source: Epidemiology, Planning, and Evaluation Branch, CDPHE
26“Stories” Obesity“Severe Needs Schools (those with a large number of students that are at 185% of FPL) and the “Working Poor” are part of the target population.”“There needs to be a community-wide effort to address this issue- the issue of “healthy minded” parenting.”“Incentives are weak in light of the perceived costs/time/effort required to maintain healthy behaviors.”
29“Stories” Suicide“Substance use/abuse is a contributing factor in the majority of the cases. The likelihood of intervention decreases as poverty increases.”“Early reporting of annual figures show 2011 rates (of child and partner abuse) increasing over 2010.”“ Most services are currently response-based and public awareness for early intervention is beginning to grow.”“Stress, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse need to be addressed with collaborative efforts. Training and resources in the county seem to be lacking alignment.”

35Work toward efforts to… Address parents’ role in children's health and well beingCommunicate, over and over, the existence of key community resourcesIdentify and align community resources: when many programs work independently to address an issue, those agencies compete for clients and resourcesImplement continuous, far-reaching campaigns to address social norms, perceived consequences, and perceived benefits
36Efforts must be… Sustainable Consistent Collaborative Frequent AppealingAppropriateAccessibleHighly Visible
37Target Population Considerations Families at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Level (Obesity, Unintended Pregnancies, Unhealthy Pregnancies, Domestic Violence)Hispanic Teens (Unintended Pregnancies)Young and Middle Age Males (Suicide)Other?
38Infrastructure Implications Community Health Improvement plan will include recommendations for:Continued Assessment and Evaluation: County Data and Information Advisory Consortium (CODIAC).Defining improvements in “Partnerships” that result in alignment and prioritizationWorking with the community to develop sustainability plans for programs that are demonstrating success.Evidence-based practices to address issues
395 year Improvement Cycle Population Health Advisory Committee will oversee all 3 Winnable Battle initiativesSuicide Prevention Summit“LiveWell” obesity campaign to address “Health Eating and Active Living” (HEAL)Teen Sexual Health and Pregnancy Prevention Coalition
