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 (HHSA).    

Megan Hauser, MA, MCHES®, Public Health Education Supervisor, coordinates the Healthy Haywood Coalition.  Healthy Haywood is supported by Seth Barton, BS, Public Health Educator.  

Based on data collected from Haywood County residents and current health statistics, health priorities are determined by the community every three years.  Our current priorities are featured in the 2021 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.
