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.
