Health Department asks community for feedback on potential community health priorities
Johnson County Public Health’s county-wide health assessment and improvement plan, HealthyJoCo is asking the Johnson County community to help with selecting 4 community health priorities. The selected health priorities are fundamental in addressing critical challenges standing in the way of all Johnson County community members having the resources, access, and opportunity to thrive in a resilient, safe, and inclusive community. Community members will be given 13 health priorities to choose from based on the data collected and input received in the community health assessment process. Johnson County Public Health encourages individuals to review data collected over the past year and a half at the HealthyJoCo website, http://www.healthyjoco.com.
“We’re asking the Johnson County community to participate in selecting four community health priorities. These health priorities will provide major direction of our community health improvement plan in hopes to address the most critical needs and make the most impact. Our team has worked diligently to aggregate health data, collect feedback, and compile as much evidence as possible to guide this process. These priorities will be monitored continuously by our team to evaluate long-term health improvement efforts over the next few years.” said Sam Jarvis, Community Health Manager.
Johnson County community members have until Friday, December 1st to give input on the survey.
HealthyJoCo is a collaborative effort comprised of public health staff and community leaders that help oversee and provide direction for health assessment and health improvement efforts. If you are interested in getting involved in health improvement planning, please contact [email protected].
