The CHIP is developed to identify major health concerns, describe community strengths and assets, and identify community challenges and areas of improvement in Chaffee County. Additionally, the goals of this project are to engage community members in local public health decision-making as well as to encourage a diversity of perspectives from across Chaffee County.
