Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) provides technical assistance and training for WeTHRIVE! communities. A public health educator guides each community through developing its own WeTHRIVE! team, completing an assessment, creating an action plan, and implementing this plan. We connect your team with partners and other public health professionals based on your selected pathway.
