Live Healthy Lane Project

Live Healthy Lane logo

We all want our region to be a healthy place to live and learn, work and play.
The Lane County region has a strong foundation for a healthy community. Built around abundant natural resources, collaboration across organizations, hardworking residents, caring neighborhoods, and innovation; we are proud of these assets, but there is still much work to be done. 

Live Healthy Lane is a collaborative project between United Way of Lane County, Lane County Public Health, PeaceHealth, Trillium Community Health Plan, and community partners that consists of a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The goal of this work is to improve the community's mental, physical and social health. Reducing health disparities, promoting health equity and improving overall population health is the central purpose of the assessment and improvement effort.

2015-2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)

The 2015-2016 Lane County Regional Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is more than charts and graphs. It is more than statistics and numbers. This assessment introduces a new approach to community health, one where decisions about programs and interventions are not based solely on “the numbers,” but also on what community members feel is important as they strive to live a healthier life. Using the voice of the community and supporting data, the findings from the CHNA will be used to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHIP will identify goals, strategies, and activities to address some of the issues prioritized by the community. The ultimate goal is to improve the mental, physical and social health and overall well-being of those in our community.

2016-2019 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The 2016-2019 Lane County Regional CHIP outlines how our community and partners will work together the two strategic identified by the 2015-2016 Community Health Needs Assessment. This plan allows us to focus our community’s efforts and resources on the most important issues to achieve the greatest impact on our community's mental, physical, social and economic health.

Goals of the 2016-2019 CHIP

  1. Increase economic and social opportunities that promote healthy behaviors.
  2. Increase healthy behaviors to improve health and well-being.
