Dashboard

We have partnered with the PA Office of Rural Health to develop the Healthy Communities Institute CHNA System. Through this partnership we have created a Community Health Dashboard that highlights indicator data for Blair County, which includes specific data for our priorities chosen as a result of the community health needs assessment.

To review this data, please visit our Blair County HCI Dashboard page.

Congratulations to our Bridges Network: The National Association of Counties (NACo) in partnership with the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps Programs has chosen 12 rural counties to receive community coaching on efforts to reduce childhood poverty. This assistance is part of the White House Rural Council’s Rural Impact County Challenge.  As a result of collaboration between the Blair County Board of Commissioners and the Healthy Blair County Coalition, Blair County was one of the counties selected from across the country to work with community coaches to advance community goals to improve the lives of their residents.

Please consider participating in the Everybody Walk Across PA initiative. You can find more details using the link below. Last year, Blair County had 30 teams that walked a total of 15,728 miles. Even if you don’t walk but participate in another type of exercise, those miles can be transferred. So let’s get together and beat our own record!
