About Murray Calloway County Wellness Consortium
The Murray Calloway County Wellness Consortium was established July 2012. We completed our Community Health Assessment (CHA) in 2013. Obesity and Substance Abuse were identified as our two main issues. A five year Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) was developed in 2014. An Obesity Work Group, Lighten Up Calloway, was formed to be the owner responsible for facilitating the strategies aimed at reducing obesity in Calloway County. The Calloway Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention agreed to be the owner of the substance abuse strategies of the CHIP.
Vision: To maximize the health and wellness of the citizens of Murray-Calloway County.
The Murray-Calloway Wellness Consortium strives to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Calloway County by coordinating the services of community organizations and executing a county-wide sustainable strategy that results in a long-term tangible impact on the health of our community.
