Background and Past Reports
The Park County Public Health Assessment and Public Health Improvement Plan was completed in June 2018. Formerly, the first Community Health Assessment was completed in April 2013. These documents provide a comprehensive analysis of the health status of the community and identifies areas that we can work to improve as a community.
The Park County Community Health Assessment was conducted as part of a 5 year process in collaboration with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Every 5 years all local public health agencies complete a Community Health Assessment and develop or update their Public Health Improvement Plan. This information is then incorporated into the statewide plan.
The Park County Community Health Assessment analyzes a number of different health indicators including air and water quality, acute and chronic diseases and injuries, and social determinants of health including poverty, income and education. This document serves as a reference to develop strategies to mobilize the community to address key health issues. Releasing the findings of the Park County Community Health Assessment is the first step in the process of creating a healthier community.
Thank you for your interest in the health of the community and for taking the time to read this report. Please check back for updates to the plan. We welcome your feedback, interest and engagement in the health of Park County.
