Health Promotion Activities
The Health Promotion Team works within the community to assist local organizations with policy development and implementation, environmental changes such as walking trails, worksite wellness programs, joint use agreements, and coalition building related to health priorities. Our work is focused on health priorities that have been identified by the county's most recent community health assessment.
The Health Promotion team, with the assistance of multiple community partners including Caldwell UNC Health Care, lead efforts in conducting the Community Health Assessment (CHA) every three years as a way to identify the needs of the community. Community members are asked to provide input into the selection of the county's health needs and come together to identify interventions that target those needs. The past 2 years have put a strain on our community, we are in hope to capture more needs with 2022 CHA data.
