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. Our initial task is to address the prevention and management of prediabetes and diabetes, and stakeholders across the region are working together to create the first Diabetes Action Plan for the Mid Shore. We won't stop there, as we hope to be a 'home' for those seeking to address the numerous health priorities across our region.
Improve the health of our Mid Shore residents and achieve equity in health status.
Create the healthiest Mid Shore in one generation.
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.
