Community Health Needs Assessment
In 2010, community leaders came together to assess the health status and priority health issues facing the county. These health priorities were overweight/obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and substance abuse. The community health needs assessment resulted in a community health plan that identified goals and associated activities to improve on the health of the community in these priorities over a 5-year period.
Over the last three years, multiple collaborative efforts by many organizations in the Clay County public health system have been aimed at addressing the activities delineated in the health plan’s call to action. We offer this mid-cycle report as evidence of the strong commitment of community leaders and the organizations they represent in applying the lessons learned through the assessment in targeting their efforts. Please take the time to review this report. It is hoped that the findings of the health assessment and associated improvement plan will continue to serve as a guide the Clay County leaders in their program development and implementation. Individuals and organizations that would like to join in this collaborative effort are encouraged to contact the Clay County Health Department to see how they can become involved to reaching the goal of optimum health for all Clay County residents.
