Evaluation Workgroup Report (Ohio)

Resource Summary

The Evaluation Workgroup was tasked with evaluating collaborations among the three health districts in Portage County, and with providing recommendations to local health officials on ways to improve those collaborative relationships. To develop the recommendations, workgroup members engaged in a series of activities with assistance from Kent State University’s Center for Public Policy and Health (KSU-CPPH) staff, including developing an inventory of health department services that were provided collaboratively and independently, and performing an evaluation of those collaborations. This process resulted in recommendations that are presented within the report.
