Huddleston elected PHHC chair
Dianna Huddleston, Director of Comprehensive Outpatient Services for Aspire Indiana/Aspire Indiana Health, has been elected as chair of the Partnership for a Healthy Hamilton County (PHHC) Executive Committee. She had previously served as member at large.
The PHHC is a collaboration of healthcare providers, human service agencies, community leaders, business owners and school leadership whose goal is to improve and maintain the health of all Hamilton County residents. The group’s three key goals are optimizing access to healthcare, integrating healthy behaviors and promoting preventive health services.
While Hamilton County ranks near the top of health data surveys and statistics for Indiana, overall the state ranks poorly in measured health outcomes. According to PHHC data, Indiana is ranked 38th on the list of healthiest states and 47th on the list of states with the healthiest well-being.
Huddleston is Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work from Ball State University and Indiana University, respectively. She has been very active within community mental health in Indiana for more than 20 years and is Director of Aspire’s Hamilton & Boone Counties Outpatient Services.
The election is for a one-year term.
