The Coalition's mission is to identify and evaluate health risks and coordinate resources to measurably improve the health of the people of Kanawha County.  
 
Every three years the Coalition works with the community to determine the top health issues by conducting a county-wide health needs assessment. This assessment includes a survey of key leaders in our community, a telephone survey among randomly selected households in Kanawha County, and careful analysis of existing research and data on health statistics for our county as compared to West Virginia and the Nation. 
 
Work Groupsare being formed around obesity/nutrition, lack of physical activity and drug abuse (including prescription drug abuse)(Click to "get involved!"). 
 

Mission: To identify and evaluate health risks and coordinate resources to measurably improve the health of the people of Kanawha County.
