The Dakota County Community Health Improvement Plan is a key step in a long-term, systematic effort to address public health issues identified in the community health assessment.
Two community action teams developed goals, measurable objectives and action steps for the two priority planning areas identified by the Healthy Dakota Initiative: promoting mental health and reducing obesity by increasing physical activity and improving eating habits.
The plan is intended to be a call to action and a guide for community stakeholders to improving health in Dakota County.
