Washtenaw Childhood Obesity Surveillance Data 

The Washtenaw childhood obesity surveillance project began in 2013. Through the Health Improvement Plan (HIP) collaborative, Washtenaw County Public Health worked with St. Joseph Mercy Health System and the University of Michigan Health System to create the first Washtenaw Child BMI Dataset. WCPH compiled and analyzed the data in order to create community data reports. Our HIP partnership has a lot to be proud of!  Other counties across Michigan have already approached us to find out how they can start a similar process in their own community. 

2015 Countywide HIP Health Survey Completed

The 2015 Health Improvement Plan (HIP) survey is complete. Over 2,600 local residents have participated in confidential phone interviews about their health.
