Community Health Survey

Community Health Assessment

In order to understand the current health needs of Jefferson County residents and identify where and how health can be improved, CHIP (Public Health’s Community Health Improvement Plan) is conducting a comprehensive health assessment of the community. In addition to the data gathering that we completed for the 2014 survey, we are gathering a diversity of voices from the community using an online (and paper) health survey and three public conversations (forums) around the county.
