Input from Carroll County's Residents is Needed for Health Assessment Process

Friday, 18 June 2010

Local boards of health are responsible for leading this initiative and have received guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health.

Following the assessment process, plans are developed and reports will be available through the Community Health Needs Assessment and Health Improvement Plan (CHNA&HIP) web site www.idph.state.ia.us/chnahip.  

“In these tight economic times, it’s important for us to maximize our resources and place our dollars where they can do the most good,” said Stephanie King, Public Health Coordinator.  “Carefully assessing the health needs of our community and getting input from many community partners will help us do that.” Community partners may include hospitals, community organizations, health centers, social service providers, school officials, law enforcement personnel, faith-based organizations, businesses, industry, citizens and the media and any one who is interested in the health of the community.  

The community needs survey is available on Public Health’s website http://www.co.carroll.ia.us/PublicHealth/publichealth.htm.  If a community member does not have access to a computer, they may call Public Health to receive a copy of the survey.  The survey will need to be filled out and returned to Public Health to be put into the computer.
