Community Health Improvement (CHI) Learning Collaborative

Our health and well-being are products of not only the health care we receive and the choices we make, but also the places where we live, learn, work, and play. Community health improvement (CHI) is a process to identify and address the health needs of communities. Because working together has a greater impact on health and economic vitality than working alone, CHI brings together health care, public health, and other stakeholders to consider high-priority actions to improve community health.

InfoGThe Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership (HSMP) is one of 9 communities selected  to participate in the CDC Community Health Improvement (CHI) Learning Collaborative.

The CHI Learning Collaborative aims to provide an opportunity for new or existing CHI partnerships to learn about the CHI process and its underlying principles in greater depth, and use the CHI Navigator to strengthen their ability to conduct an effective and collaborative CHI process.
