1 Public Health Strategic Plan Douglas County, Oregon Douglas County 2014

2 Letter from the Director Dear Colleagues It is with great enthusiasm that I present the Public Health Strategic Plan for As you know, Public Health is responsible for protecting, promoting and improving the health of all Douglas County residents. Every day, Public Health employees work in cooperation with medical care providers, community organizations, and others to protect individuals and communities from health threats, such as infectious disease outbreaks and preventable illness and injury. We also work to improve the long-term health and vitality of our community by addressing the underlying causes of many chronic, costly and life-threatening diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. This Strategic Plan provides Public Health and our local stakeholders with a clear picture of where we are headed, what we plan to achieve, and the methods by which it will succeed. As we move forward, we will develop specific strategies and methods to implement and evaluate our Strategic Plan. Along the way, we will identify new and existing partnerships to build a healthier Douglas County. We all have a role to play in creating opportunities for all citizens to live a long, healthy life, regardless of their income, education or geography. Working together with our partners, we will continue to have a positive impact on the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities we serve. Sincerely, Dawnelle Marshall, RN, BSN Public Health Division Director Douglas County Health and Social Services 621 W. Madrone St. Roseburg, OR Phone: (541) Fax: (541) ii
