Mikayla Certo is a Community Project Coordinator with the Chautauqua County Health Network (CCHN). Through her position with CCHN, she works on a number of projects. Some of these projects include working with communities to implement complete street policies, coordinating the Chautauqua County Food Security Task Force, and working with local corner stores to bring healthy foods into communities. In her time with the Food Security Task Force, Mikayla has distributed a USDA food security assessment which explores barriers to county residents obtaining enough food. These results will provide insight into food security in our area. Mikayla feels we should engage with and gain knowledge directly from those living in the communities that we are trying to impact.
