Chronic Disease Workgroup

Male Diabetic Checking Blood Sugar LevelsTHE CHALLENGE: Marion County has outstanding healthcare services to treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and complications from tobacco use. However, members of the Marion County Health Alliance believe it is necessary to work backwards to prevent chronic diseases. The Alliance is working to bring organizations together to encourage healthy behaviors that can prevent the issues that currently leave our residents with a lower quality of life.

GOAL:  Improve the education, prevention, detection and treatment of chronic diseases in conjunction with Measure Up Marion.
