3 CHNA 22 Mission The mission of the Greater Brockton CHNA is to work toward healthier communities by promoting collaboration between CHNA partners, providing support to local health initiatives and prevention programs, and educating and increasing awareness of local identified health issues throughout the ten CHNA communities.
