Community Health Assessment

Every five years, local public health departments are required to take a close look at the health and wellness needs of their communities by conducting a community health assessment. This assessment seeks input from community members to identify the top health and wellness priorities among our residents. The information that we gather through this assessment will inform a public health improvement plan that aims to address the priorities you tell us are important. La Plata County Public Health staff will be finalizing a community health assessment in the first quarter of 2024, using the information gathered in San Juan Basin Public Health's assessment, which was adopted in December 2023.
