Members and representation in HSC includes public health, local health care agencies, schools, businesses, and community representatives that work together to help the community live better, longer lives.
History: HSC was formed by the Sheboygan County Division of Public Health in 1993 with a restructuring in 2004 and 2011.
Mission: To improve the health of the people of Sheboygan County-- leading to a community with "Everyone Living Better, Longer."
The Mission is accomplished by following the following objectives:

- Identifying existing resources through organizations, agencies, citizen groups, and health care providers addressing specific public health issues;
- Forming meaningful, action oriented coalitions of existing resources to reduce fragmentation effort in addressing Sheboygan County quality of life issues;
- Mobilizing our community's residents in taking responsibility for adopting healthier lifestyles.
Community Health Committees have been created based on assessment of the community's needs and input of county residents. Currently there are three larger Community Health Committees:
