Public Health

The Norfolk Department of Public Health (NDPH), in collaboration with a Community Advisory Board, is leading a new initiative to improve the health of our community! 
Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships
For the last year, we worked with community partners and residents to identify and better understand significant health issues in Norfolk. To identify these issues, we used a process called MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships). This process applies strategic thinking, community input and data analysis to prioritize health issues and begin identifying ways to address them.

Through community and partner feedback, we prioritized two issues – safe communities and chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, obesity) -- to begin working on together. We also prioritized a third issue – sexual health and plan to have a meeting soon to help address this problem.

Through community and partner feedback, we prioritized three issues – safe communities, chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, obesity) and sexual health -- to begin working on together.

Norfolk Department of Public Health is hosting several work group sessions and community meetings to brainstorm ideas to include in action plans to make Norfolk a healthier and safer place to be. Please see the upcoming meeting dates, click on the links below, review the flyers and plan to join us at our upcoming events to provide your feedback!
