The Brazos Valley Health Coalition (BVHC) was formed in January 2016 to act as a coordinated group to address health issues in the Brazos Valley.  The BVHC, which consists of numerous social service, healthcare, education, and governmental agencies, has two main goals:

  • Conduct a community health assessment (CHA) to identify the health needs and strengths of the Brazos Valley
  • Create a community health improvement plan (CHIP) to determine health priorities and specific strategies that can be implemented to address the issues identified in the Community Health Assessment
