Public Health seeks community input on what influences health and well-being
Insights provided from the survey, along with data from more than 150 health indicators the department is researching, will be used to create the department’s new Community Health Assessment – an analysis public health produces every five years which guides planning on health issues throughout the county.
In addition to the online survey, Public Health is also doing in-person surveys at multiple community sites and gatherings. Survey results will be included in the Community Health Assessment, which will be available online later this year. Residents can sign-up to receive email notification when the survey results and the Community Health Assessment are available The assessment will be a guiding document as Public Health works with community partners to develop a new Community Health Improvement Plan, and the department develops a new strategic plan in order to better understand community needs, improve health, and reduce health disparities.
