Health district seeks public’s input on community health priorities
The Grant County Health District is asking for the public’s help in developing a Community Health Improvement Plan, or CHIP.
The public is being asked to prioritize those issues impacting the health of Grant County.
Four community meetings are being held throughout the county to gather this public input. One of those meetings includes a stop in Quincy.
The Quincy meeting is 1 to 3 p.m. on April 1 at Grant County Fire District No. 3.
The CHIP process builds off of the Community Health Assessment, which was completed earlier this year and is on the health district’s website. The detailed report includes the results of community interviews, surveys, focus groups, data analysis and other research methods.
The results of the community health needs assessment will be used to develop strategies to improve community benefit programs, comply with federal requirements in the Affordable Care Act and improve the overall health of the community.
Space is limited, so participants are asked to RSVP to Stephanie Dowland at 766-7960, extension 15, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who can’t attend one of the meetings, the presentation will be put on the health district’s website and the people will be able to vote for their priorities.
