City sets priorities in community health improvement

May 21, 2012

Now that its community health assessment is complete, the Health Department has identified seven areas identified for improvement.

Those areas are: alcohol/other drug abuse, safety/injury prevention, mental health, physical activity/nutrition, environmental health/healthy homes, child development and communicable disease.

The department is looking to residents to review a plan draft online and provide feedback by May 31 at

The next step is to create a Community Health Improvement Program, which will come up with goals and strategies to improve those priority areas.
