Community Health Forum

All residents are invited to attend the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Forum to share what your top health concerns are in Greater Franklin County. Dinner included and child care is available!

The forum will discuss the Franklin County Health Profile, which contains almost 200 data points that describe health outcomes, health behaviors, health care access and quality, and the environments that affect our health. The public, and other attendees representing health care organizations, social service agencies, businesses, and schools, will break into facilitated smaller groups to contribute ideas, perspectives, and priorities. The forum will also collect information about local resources that could help to address those priorities. Feedback will be used as guidance to create new, county-specific health improvement plans. Past CHNA forums have led to better access to health care, obesity prevention, and poverty awareness initiatives, among others.
