Community Communications Network:
The Community Communication Network (CCN) is an initiative by the Cook County Department of Public Health and Chicago Department of Public Health Special Needs Advisory Panel (SNAP). It is a means to disseminate health information to clients of agencies serving functional needs populations. This system will work to ensure that hard to reach populations are receiving important messages, the message is unified, and agencies are receiving information pertinent to the needs of the populations they serve.
