Enteroviruses are very common viruses. There are more than 100 types of enteroviruses. It is estimated that 10 to 15 million enterovirus infections occur in the U.S. each year. Most people infected with enteroviruses have no symptoms or only mild symptoms, but some infections can be serious. Infants, children and teenagers are most likely to get infected with enteroviruses and become sick. This is because they do not yet have immunity from previous exposures to these viruses. Most enterovirus infections in the U.S. occur seasonally during the summer and fall, and outbreaks often tend to occur in several-year cycles. > Read More

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) was developed through the leadership of the Madison County/London City Health District and 35 community representatives from 18 organizations who formed a Steering Committee. The process was facilitated by Wright State University's Center for Urban and Public Affairs. It was based on data analysis and efforts carried out in the development of the Community Needs Assessment, and was guided by evidence based research. The Steering Committee identified the health issues of greatest importance to the community, and then narrowed them down to four priority health topics:

1. Healthy Lifestyles and Diabetes/Food Security
2. Smoking Cessation and Lung Assessment
3. Mental Health Promotion
4. Access to Health Care

Task Forces were formed for each topic to frame the strategic issues and then to select evidence-based solutions for addressing the problems. Goals, objectives, action steps and time frames were then developed to address the issues and formulate the plan.
