Building a Healthier Community

About Us

The Cobb2020 Partnership is a partnership of community organizations and individuals dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and the delivery of essential health services in Cobb County. Together, through a strategic process called Mobilizing Action Through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP), Cobb2020 has assessed the current health status of the County and developed a Health Improvement Plan that will help create significant changes in building a healthier community.
 
The overall goal is to implement strategic changes throughout Cobb County that build a foundation for reducing and preventing chronic disease such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease and cancer by promoting healthy lifestyles and better access to health and prevention services for the community.
 
The Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department (CDPH) was  awarded a Community Transformation Grant (CTG) in 2011, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to help create a healthier community by making healthy living easier and more affordable where people live, work, learn and play. Ultimately, through local and federal partnerships and strategic planning, Cobb2020 will identify the leading health problems and implement initiatives to prevent chronic disease in the community

A Healthier Cobb Starts With You
Improving the health of Cobb County starts locally through strategic policy, environmental and internal system changes that make it easier to support a healthier lifestyle and proper nutrition for all. The Cobb2020 Partnership is asking Cobb’s community leaders – from local governments to educators, business owners and healthcare providers to join our effort and commitment to improve the health of our community. It is our responsibility to support healthier workplaces, food options and physical activities for the whole community.

It is time to work together as a community, both as leaders and members, to make  our community a better place to live.
