For more than two decades, Tennessee’s county health councils have provided critical leadership in bringing people together to tackle pressing issues in their communities. Beginning in 2023, the Carter County Health Council working through the Carter County Collaborative will continue this work by leading a County Health Assessment (CHA).
Supported by the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH), the Carter County Health Collaborative will lead a six-month process to collect and share stories and local data related to Carter County. Local stakeholders and community partners on the Carter County Collaborative will use this information to prioritize up to three issues for Carter County and collaborate on strategies and actions to address them.
Carter County is one of 26 counties in Tennessee participating in this year’s County Health Assessment, and over the course of three years, all 89 rural counties in Tennessee will conduct a CHA. The results from these assessments will be used to support the TDH mission to protect, promote and improve the health and prosperity of people in Tennessee. From start to finish, the CHA process puts community members in the driver’s seat and creates an exciting opportunity for Carter County residents to come together to identify and address health issues facing their community.
