Community Health Forum

In 2016, Healthy Waldo County, Maine CDC, Midcoast District Coordinating Council and Waldo County General Hospital held three community discussions about community health needs identified in the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment: cancer, alcohol and substance use, and cardiovascular health. The purpose of these forums was to present key findings from the assessment, learn from community members about what is important to them and begin to identify community health priorities for Waldo County.

If you were unable to attend a forum, you can review the data here.

In support of the MaineHealth vision of “working together so our communities are the healthiest in America,” Waldo County General Hospital has released the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment.
