The NSCHN started a new project this past year to address public health issues facing local health departments in our service area. The overall objective of the North Shore Public Health Project is to create a sustainable program in the Cape Ann/North Shore area of Massachusetts that will address a regional public health issue. To Northeast Center for Healthy Communities worked with all of the local health departments using a process called Concept Mapping. Concept mapping takes the ideas of individuals and combines them to form unique visual representations called Concept Maps.
