On July 24, 2019 the Marshall County Hospital and the Marshall County Health Department came together and invited community partners and community members from all across Marshall County to participate in a Community Health Assessment Workshop.  Prior to this workshop, we worked on gathering data about our community to present to participants.  During the day long workshop, over 45 partners and community members engaged in discussion about the health of our community.  Positive and negative data points, positive and negative changes in the community, and community assets were covered.  The discussion resulted in a consensus for the community to move forward to address the following concerns:  
  • Obesity
  • Substance Abuse
  • Mental Health
  • Access to Care
  • Community Recovery following MCHS Shooting
 
How do you feel about these results?  Please give us your feedback on how you feel about these issues.  Do you agree these are the issues we need to work on?  Did we leave something out?  How is the best way to address these issues?  We want your input!  To review the data, click on the links below.
