Comments are sought on state of health in county
The Dakota County Public Health Department is seeking comment from people who live or work in Dakota County on a new report about the health of county residents.
The community health assessment is intended to update residents on health issues that affect the quality of life and cause illness, injury and death in the county. It summarizes the top health concerns reported by residents and examines trends and issues that affect community health.
The community health assessment will be used by the Healthy Dakota Initiative to establish health priorities and identify strategies to improve health in the county. Guided by representatives from area organizations, including hospitals, clinics, schools and nonprofits, the county’s health improvement plan will be completed by fall 2014.
To review or download the draft report and provide feedback through an anonymous response form, visit www.dakotacounty.us and search for HDI. Comments will be accepted through Nov. 21.
