A total of 976 community health surveys were acquired through survey monkey and paper surveys that was given to students in schools, clinic, HANDS, and community meetings to find what the public identifies as Whitley County's major health issues. This is one of the first of four (MAPP) Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships steps implemented by the Whitley County Healthy Community Coalition. Organizations and businesses of Whitley County are part of this coalition. The goal is to improve the health of our community and decrease chronic disease and mortality by implementing evidence based strategies and policy change that will affect the outcome of community health. This community health survey will identify which evidence based strategies that will be used to create a community health improvement plan. Below is the link to reveal the findings of the Community Health Survey for 2016.
