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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
The Southern Nevada Health District serves as the local public health authority for Clark County, Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas. The agency safeguards the public health of the community’s residents and visitors through innovative programs, regulations, and initiatives focused on protecting and promoting their health and well-being. More information about the Health District, its programs, services, and the regulatory oversight it provides is available at www.SNHD.info.
