Introduction to Cobb2020 and Live Healthy Douglas

Cobb and Douglas Public Health facilitates collaborative partnerships in each county, bringing together community organizations dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and improving the delivery of essential health services.

No matter who you are, there are opportunities to partner to improve the community in which you, work, live or play!

Cobb2020 and Live Healthy Douglas are collaborative partnerships that bring together community organizations dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and improving the delivery of essential health services in Cobb and Douglas counties. Each coalition accomplishes its work through groups and committees. These include:

  • Steering Committees – Cross-sector groups of community leaders who oversee the strategic planning process within each county. Steering committee members are responsible for guiding, advising, and bringing resources to the Community Health Assessment (CHA) as well as the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
  • Workgroups – Individual teams of subject matter experts dedicated to implementing the evidence-based initiatives highlighted within the county’s CHIP. Workgroup members have community knowledge and a desire to advocate for a healthier county. The workgroups provide a space for partners to network and collaborate on shared goals and objectives.

In 2004, the Live Healthy Douglas County Coalition developed to lead Douglas County toward becoming a Tobacco-Free community.  In partnership with the Douglas C.O.R.E. (Community Organizing Resources for Excellence) Family Connections Collaborative, they helped enact some of the most forward-thinking Smoke Free Air policies in the state prior to the 2005 Georgia Smoke Free Air Act.  After that success, the group turned their attention to hosting the Power in Truth conference for youth and introducing the community to other healthy behaviors such as drug use prevention, the youth alcohol prevention initiative, physical activity and proper nutrition.  In the summer of 2014, Douglas MAPP (created in 2011) merged with the Live Healthy Douglas County Coalition to better align resources and now operates as Live Healthy Douglas (LHD). Its Steering Committee is dedicated to realizing a healthier Douglas County and represents key local public health system partners.
