In 1997, HTCC was formed to conduct a countywide assessment in order to discover the needs of the community and then better address the health problems in a coordinated, efficient and effective way.

The original assessment data indicated some clear priorities and a need for a coordinated effort. Since then, HTCC has tackled

  • Asthma
  • Hypertension
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes

Currently, the collaboration is implementing a new strategic plan that includes three areas of focus:

1. Building population health competencies across member organizations and community partners.

2. Improving a wide range of preventable and chronic diseases with better nutrition, physical activity, and other health habits.

3. Increasing awareness of and connectivity between health-related coalitions and collaborations.

Tarrant County is healthier because of this unique
vision of partnership and a generous collaborative spirit.
