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. 
To provide feedback, please email Jennifer Brown at or visit the Marshall County Health Department or Marshall County  Health Coalition Facebook pages.  Thank you!

New Kentucky Immunization Requirements
Beginning August 2018, students will be required to have two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school.  These doses must be given six months apart, meaning that many children will need the first dose very soon to be able to get the second dose before school begins in August.  Students aged 16 and older must have two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine to attend school in August.
