Community Action Teams
Community Action Teams (CATs) were established in May 2022 of community leaders, subject matter experts and community members to create actionable plans on how to move the needle in these three areas. Recruitment for the CATs consisted of strategic invitations to leaders, experts, and change-makers in each of the three categories. We knew this was essential as the Juneau County Health Department stepped into a Community Health Strategist role. We know these areas have a huge impact on community health and that we were not the experts to guide this work, but convene a space for change. Community members were also invited in through press releases, radio spots, and social media content. The CATs are open to everyone.

Community Action Teams focus on the main priorities of the Community Health Improvement Plan. These priorities are informed by the Community Health Assessment local health departments are required to complete every 5 years. It is a process to help select the most important things impacting the health of the local community.
Why does this matter? The ultimate goal of this process is to spark change in a community for the better!
