Vision

Support the communities of San Miguel County to live better, longer.

Mission Statement

To protect and enhance the health of the people and environment of San Miguel County by identifying and equitably addressing existing and emerging public health needs.

Our 5-year Plan

Every five years, local public health agencies develop a Public Health Improvement Plan (PHIP). A PHIP is the product of a community health assessment, which integrates feedback from community members and various partners to understand current top health issues in each county. 

The regional PHIP that is currently in the works (2024-2029) is comprised of two priority areas:  Capacity Building and Behavioral Health, with a focus on health equity within each area. View our newest PHIP (2024-2029) here.

These conditions, which limit opportunities for optimal health and influence individual behaviors, are critical predictors of health outcomes. To realize a future where all Coloradans can thrive, we must be leaders in undoing policies and practices that have contributed to these inequities.
