New York State Department of Health Prevention Agenda
The Prevention Agenda is a 5 year effort to make New York State the healthiest state. It serves as the blueprint for state and local community action to improve the health of New Yorkers and address health disparities. The Commissioner asked local health departments to identify local priorities and develop and implement plans to address them. In partnership with our local hospital, Cortland Regional Medical Center, we chose the areas of Chronic Disease and Healthy Women, Infants, and Children as the priorities on which to concentrate through 2017.

County Health Rankings
County Health Rankings is a "call to action" for communities to work together to develop programs and policies that help people lead healthier lives. The Rankings are a key component of the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Please visit the County Health Rankings website for ideas on taking action in your community.
Seven Valleys Health Coalition, Inc.
Since 2001, five local organizations and agencies have collaborated as the Community Assessment Team (CAT), to provide assets and needs assessments on the health and well-being of our community. These resources are published in two forms, the annual Cortland Counts Report Card, and the more comprehensive Cortland Counts Report, issued every 3 to 4 years.
