We do better together.
Everyone has insight to contribute, experience to share, and knowledge to guide the path toward improving population health in our state. Together, we’re working to find common ground on what we should do.
Wyoming residents were invited to participate in a process and dialogue that will shape strategy for each priority. Deliberating on the approaches and actions will help us find common ground on what gets included in the final plan.
The results from the forums will be analyzed to aggregate information across multiple forums. The steering committee will use that information to make final strategy recommendations.
As progress is made, information will be shared with the public on recommendations and next steps.
With many partners and community members along the way, we have learned about Wyoming’s pressing health needs and concerns. That process led to agreement on three key priorities that should be addressed – behavioral health, access to health care, and unintentional injury. Now we are moving into the next step of defining what we should do to address those priorities. You can learn more about previous work on the state health assessment and priority selection on our assessment and improvement planning page.
These forums were coordinated by the Wyoming Department of Health, in partnership with the University of Wyoming Extension Office and the State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) Steering Committee. The University’s Unlocking Community Health Access Together (UCHAT) Grand Challenges project supported the forum platform and promotion of the forums.
