Community Health Needs
Ida & Sac Counties in Iowa
Creating healthy communities requires a high level of mutual understanding and collaboration with the community individuals and partner groups. The development of this assessment brings together community health leaders and providers along with local residents to research and prioritize county health needs as well as to document community health delivery success.
This health assessment will serve as the foundation for community health improvement efforts for the next three years.
