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.
