Healthy Community Committees (HCC)

Beginning in 2016, the Prevention Services Division of Cochise County Health & Social Services used ADHS cash carry forward funds to create a full-time position to support the development of "healthy community committees" in each community throughout Cochise County. The focus of these committees is to identify and address health concerns specific to their neighborhoods, towns, and surrounding areas, and also to assist the Healthy Cochise Coalition to implement goals and strategies of the Community Health Improvement Plan within their communities. In Spring 2016, there were three HCCs - Sierra Vista, Fort Huachuca, and Wilcox. With Prevention Service's support, there are now eight. Newly developed HCCs include: Tombstone, Bisbee, Benson, Douglas, and Huachuca City. 

It's all about community. Will you join the initiative?
