Building Health Equity
For the past year, Fayette’s Community Development Corporation has been collaborating with the Fulton County Health Department and Healthy Choices Caring Communities (HC3), to explore the intersection of health equity and tobacco use in our community.
This workgroup, made up of residents representing different community sectors, have come together monthly, to learn more about health equity, build partnerships, assess data, and explore strategies. The group selected tobacco users with a lower income as those individuals who are most affected by their tobacco use.
The workgroup has developed a Five Year Tobacco Health Equity Strategic Plan to help support the community as they work together to decrease youth starting to use tobacco, increase opportunities for both youth and adults to quit tobacco, as well as consideration of strengthening second hand smoke policies. Fayette's Community Development Corporation, with support from the Fulton County Health Department will begin the implementation of this plan in September 2022.
