Improving Community Health
Many factors contribute to the health of Carson City, both positive and negative. These include the challenges of living in a rural area, Nevada’s unique culture, the physical environment and the condition of the Local Public Health System (LPHS). In 2013, the United Health Foundation ranked Nevada 37th in the nation for overall public health. We continue to be challenged by poor public health per-person spending, low high-school graduation rates and increased violence.
Community Health Needs Assessment
This Quad-County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) serves as a critical phase in the overall effort to improve community health. Through the collaborative CHNA process, we create a snapshot of community health perceptions, health behaviors, and disparities. We develop an inventory of community assets and resources available to catalyze progress, and we reach consensus on our top community health priorities.
