Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Collaborative

The Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Collaborative, supported through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,was initiated by the Virginia Department of Health in September 2011 for the purpose of aligning the goals and activities of internal and external stakeholders in order to achieve better health outcomes. A Collaborative Network has been established that includes representatives from state government, state coalitions, academia, community and faith-based groups, advocacy foundations, and more. A Virginia Shared Agenda for health promotion and chronic disease prevention has been affirmed by the Collaborative. The Virginia Shared Agenda concentrates on four of the seven strategic areas from the National Prevention Strategy (i.e., active living, healthy eating, tobacco free living, and clinical and community preventive services), and is intended to foster and facilitate a united approach by creating synergistic partnerships between individuals and groups and focusing resources and expertise on improving the health and wellness of individuals, families and communities.


Collaborative Network members meet routinely to coordinate activities and share expertise, successful approaches, training and funding opportunities, resources and more. Network members may also engage in thoughtful discussions and share resources using phConnect - an online collaborative tool specifically designed for public health professionals.


Connect, Collaborate, Change
