Community Health Priorities 2012 to 2015

Based on analysis of health statistics and research findings detailed in this report, the leadership of HCMC discussed and identified the three community priorities for the next four years.

    HCMC Priorities:
  • Reduce the incidence of preventable chronic diseases related to obesity, particularly diabetes and heart disease.
  • Promote recruitment and retention of additional primary care physicians and dental practitioners serving Macon County residents.
  • Reduce the incidence and mortality rates of breast, colon and lung cancer through prevention and early intervention efforts.
Three committees have been formed to address these priority issues. The committees are Obesity Prevention, Cancer Prevention and Support and Medical and Dental Community Development Committee.
