The 2019 MAPP2Health Report is now available! You can download your copy here.
This report builds on the work of the 2016 MAPP process and focuses on health equity across the district-wide priorities identified in earlier MAPP reports to promote healthy eating and active living, address mental health and substance use, reduce health disparities and improve access to care, and foster a healthy and connected community for all ages. Some highlights of the report include:
- A community plan for action, with strategies from the MAPP Core Group, community coalitions, and organizations receiving MAPP implementation funding (pages 37–57) à for several Nelson County-specific implementation strategies, see pages 44 & 48
- Recommendations from the Diabetes Steering Committee, a community-led group that identified recommendations to address access to services and diabetes disparities for African American and Latino communities within the district (pages 67–73)
- Themes from Photovoice projects conducted across the district (pages 58–66); photos throughout the report were taken by community members
- Over 100 pages of community health data organized by MAPP priority (pages 74–212)
- Recommended best practices by MAPP priority (pages 219–221)
We are grateful to you for devoting significant expertise, time, and energy to the 2019 MAPP process and for committing resources and capital to improve health equity in our community. We look forward to continued collaboration with you and the communities we serve to take action that will move us closer to achieving health equity for all.
Thank you for your dedication and partnership.
