About Us

Healthy Haywood

The mission of Healthy Haywood is to improve the health of Haywood County citizens.  Our local coalition is not a project, but a process, to bring together community members to focus on health.

Healthy Haywood is based on the concept that community members are the most qualified to effectively prioritize the health concerns in their community and to plan and execute creative solutions to these problems.  We are a program of the Haywood County Health and Human Services Agency.    

Megan's head shot

Megan Hauser is the Healthy Haywood Coordinator.  Megan is a native of North Carolina and studied health education at East Carolina University.  She has 11 years of experience in rural public health.  Healthy Haywood is also supported by Lauren Wood, Public Health Education Supervisor. 

Based on data collected from Haywood County citizens and current health statistics, health priorities are determined by the community every three years.  Our current priorities are featured in the 2018 Community Health Assessment. 

Health topics emerge as the coalition grows.  The coalition creates action plans that include programs and activities as well as support for policies addressing health concerns in the county.
