Memo From CHNA Program Manager


Good Afternoon,

Attached you will find the slides from the HAPP meeting last Thursday, that you can actually see. Again we apologize for the technical difficulties!

If you were unable to attend, we would still like your feedback on the Prioritization Process. We asked those that attended the following question: What is the most important aspect (current or new) about the prioritization process that needs to be considered to advance the overall process? If you wish to provide feedback, just email me back with your response or any other thoughts about the prioritization process. The Data Sub-Group over next few months will be working on reviewing the feedback and drafting a new process for 2019.


Below you will find the invite for the Community Health Forum that was shared at the meeting. Hopefully you all received it this morning. This is a new initiative that will occur quarterly. Please read the email below for more information and to register use this link: Register for the Community Health Forum. If you have any questions, let me know!

PowerUp- Creating Collaboration and Change for the Entire Community

Community Health Forums are Free and Open to All.


Marna Canterbury, Director of Community Health and Julia Johnson, Bear Power Coordinator from HealthPartners- Lakeview Health Foundation



PowerUp is a community-wide youth health initiative to make better eating and active living easy, fun, and popular, so that our youth can reach their full potential. PowerUp is a long-term commitment to create change over 10 years in partnership with schools, businesses, health care, civic groups, families, kids, and the entire community!


Come and learn how PowerUp has started and sustained successful community collaborations in multiple HealthPartner communities located in Minnesota and Wisconsin.


Community Health Forum



The goals of the forums are:

1) To bring a diverse group of community members and partners together for cross sharing (including success stories from our community) and networking.

2) To provide a space to learn and discuss broad community health topics to move the community into action.

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
