There are two major types of lung cancer: Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). About 85-90% of all lung cancers are NSCLC. If a lung cancer has characteristics of both types, it is called a mixed small cell/large cell cancer. Mixed cell lung cancer is not as common.

Chippewa Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP) is an award-winning collaborative endeavor that identifies community health needs, establishes priorities and creates strategies to improve the health and quality of life in Wisconsin's Chippewa County.

CHIP spearheads community health needs assessments, used to identify key areas of health care needs in Chippewa County. The report details what residents view as health needs. The top four identified needs becomes CHIPs main focus areas. Currently, those focus areas are: mental health, alcohol misuse, substance abuse, and obesity.

COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Though health and wellness issues often begin at the individual level, we lead health awareness efforts aimed at the entire community.

Every three years, we assist with conducing the Chippewa County Community Health Assessment (CHA). The main goal of the CHA is to learn more about the health needs in the community. The CHA process gives the community the chance to decide the top health needs and get involved in working toward a healthier community.
