Vote Online to Weigh In on Local Health Priorities

Post Date:02/05/2019 3:00 PM
The Community Health Needs Assessment is under way in Wake County, and as part of that effort, local leaders are asking residents to say what they think the county’s health priorities should be for the next three years.  

Residents can vote online by visiting through Friday, Feb. 15. 

The CHNA is conducted every three years to determine what priorities the county and its partners should pursue to improve the overall health and well-being of the county. The assessment involves analyzing health data and statistics, as well as input from residents and professional and non-profit providers, to create a report to the community used to guide decision making for the next three years.

The CHNA is a collaborative effort among Wake County, WakeMed, Duke Raleigh Hospital, UNC Rex Healthcare, Advance Community Health, The United Way of the Greater Triangle and Wake County Medical Society Community Health Foundation. The process is overseen by a steering committee made up of more than 60 community partners including local governments, hospitals, schools, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, businesses and other stakeholders.
