COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESSMENT SURVEY TAKE OUR SURVEY regarding our community and it’s health needs! Public Health has had a more visible presence in the community for the last couple of years related to our COVID response. In Door County, we have a lot to be proud of. As a county, just over 75 % of those eligible for vaccine have received the first full series, and many have received boosters as well. This was a result of great collaboration between our citizens, health care providers and Public Health. Strong collaborative efforts are one of the things that make Door County a great place to live. What you may not know about Public Health, is that since the mid 90’s we have conducted a Community Needs Assessment (CNA) every five years. The CNA is a systematic process involving data collection and analysis, interviews with community partners, and input from residents. These CNA’s helps us to better understand the health needs of our community. In turn, impacting how we focus our efforts to work towards improving the health or our community. The four areas of focus from our last assessment included; Mental Health, Adequate appropriate safe food and nutrition, Oral Health and Healthy Growth and Development. The next step in this year’s process is to gather input from the residents of Door County. We need your help! The more input we receive, the better able we are to establish goals for the future. We invite all residents to take part in this process by completing this 2022 Door County Health Needs Assessment Survey. Paper copies are also available at the Public Health Office or call us for additional locations. Your input will help shape our focus over the next several years. The survey is completely anonymous and does not collect any identifying information. You should be able to complete it in under 10 minutes. Thanks in advance for providing us your responses. Once the data is compiled, our staff and team of community partners will analyze, prioritize and work to develop and implement a response to the identified needs of our community. We anticipate the results to be available in the fall and will share through public forums and various mediums at that time.
