Some of the greatest needs in improving health in Jackson and Josephine Counties do not include things like diet and exercise. 

Those are important, too, but the Jefferson Regional Health Alliance recently released its Community Health Improvement Plan, or CHIP, and it laid out some priorities.  Those include better care for mental illness and substance use, safe and affordable housing, and parenting support/life skills.  We get into the specifics of the plan and its priorities in a visit with Angela Warren, Collaboration Manager for the JRHA.
