About the Coalition

All jurisdictions in Maryland have Local Health Improvement Coalitions to address pressing health issues. In 2021, the five Mid Shore counties banded together to share knowledge, and leverage scarce resources. We started by first addressing the prevention and management of diabetes, and have since expanded to focus on additional regional priorities. Our current workgroups include Diabetes/Healthy Living, Health Equity/Social Determinants of Health, Tobacco/Cancer, Telehealth, Health Literacy, and Provider Recruitment and Retention.


Improve the health of our Mid Shore residents and achieve equity in health status.


Create the healthiest Mid Shore in one generation.


Happy Senior Couple


We are a "home" for people who share a commitment to population health. We believe
we have greater potential for impact when we create community to solve problems,
share new ideas and explore different perspectives.


The Coalition's Mission, Vision, and Values are adopted from the American Public Health Association.

The Coalition thrives because of our broad and diverse member organizations.
