Health District seeks community input for the 2020 Community Health Assessment

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
May 14, 2020

LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District is seeking participation by members of the public for the 2020 Community Health Assessment (CHA), which identifies community-wide, health-related needs and strengths, as well as available resources to address and improve health outcomes. For information about the CHA or about how to participate, contact Dontia Yates, a health educator in the Health District’s Office of Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance, at yates@snhd.org.

The CHA process involves community partners and members, stakeholders, and public health system partners who provide their input through surveys and open discussions. Following the collection of health-related data from multiple community sources, health priorities are identified, and plans developed to address them.

The findings of the CHA include a community health profile, community decision-making information, prioritization of health problems, and the development and implementation of a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The Health District’s previous CHA is available on its website:  Southern Nevada Community Health Assessment May 2016.
