Community Health Needs Assessment & Health Improvement Plan

Monona County Community Health Needs Assessment Meeting Invitation

Our health and well-being are products of not only the health care we receive and the choices we make, but also the places where we live, learn, work, and play. A Community Health Needs Assessment and Health Improvement Plan (CHNA & HIP) is a process to identify and address the health needs of the communities in Monona County. Since working together has a greater impact on health and economic vitality than working alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CHNA & HIP brings together health care, public health, and other vital community partners to consider high priority actions to improve the community's health.

Would you like to help determine what the high priority health needs are for Monona County? If so, your help is needed during the CHNA & HIP process.

Monona County Public Health, Burgess Health Center and ISU Extension of Monona County would like to invite community organizations and the public to attend one of the following meetings. At these meetings, a brief presentation of the Community Health Needs Assessment data report will be given. After this brief presentation, attendees will discuss and narrow down what the highest priority health needs are in the county and then set goals and strategies that will be focused on over the next five years.
