Description

The purpose of this VISTA project will be to build capacity within the public health system of Gallatin County by developing and implementing system improvements, community collaborations, and strategies that contribute to the ongoing community health improvement process.

The 2020 Community Health Needs Assessment showed that health is not equally distributed throughout the region, with significant differences in health status, behaviors, and outcomes among the population according to gender, age, income, and race/ethnicity. The priority health needs in areas such as Behavioral Health, Substance Abuse, Access to Health Care, and Nutrition and Physical Activity disproportionately impact those in the community who experience barriers to healthcare, are living in poverty, and are un-served or under-served. This project will help develop and implement the Community Health Improvement Plan, which will work with stakeholders to implement sustainable public health programs.

This VISTA project will move Gallatin County residents out of poverty by developing and implementing health improvement strategies resulting in sustainable public health programs that reduce health disparities, ensure health equality, and improve health outcomes. Located in Bozeman, MT!
