BEDHD uses data from the Healthy! Capital Counties Community Health Needs Assessment to inform the Community Health Improvement Plan. In 2012 and 2015, the three capital counties (Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham) completed a shared health assessment process and coordinated planning process. Visit the Healthy! Capital Counties website to learn more and get involved!
Maternal-Child Health Assessments
The Maternal-Child Health Assessment and Planning process uses various data sources in order to compare the health of women and children in the Barry-Eaton district with the health of women across the state and county. In 2016 and 2017 BEDHD in partnership with a variety of community stakeholders is completing three assessments. In late 2017 the partners will create a Maternal-Child Health Plan to address concerns from the assessments. As materials become available, they will be shared here.
