Community-Based Collaborative Partner
Welcome to a listing of Knox County Health Department community-based collaborative partners. These partnerships are fostered from within theKnox County Health Department via staff located in the Community Health Planning & Initiatives Division. As we progress further into enhancing the health of people who live, work, and play in Knox County, we recognize the complex web of socio-economic patterns that often get in the way of major gains in health status and quality-of-life. While we know that health and quality-of-life are determined by a complex interaction of social, economic, educational, psychological, behavioral, genetic, medical and environmental variables - it is the potential unique mix of these determinants as a system embedded within a community that gives us the greatest potential for healthy change.
