Do you live, work, learn, or play in Cobb County or Douglas County? Are you interested in the health of our residents? If so, you are invited to review the 2021-2022 Community Health Assessment (CHA) for Cobb and Douglas Counties and provide your feedback on desired community priorities and suggested changes via brief surveys.
The CHA is conducted every five years and provides qualitative and quantitative data on the health status, quality of life, and risk factors for residents in Cobb County and Douglas County. The CHA includes data analyzed by population subgroups such as age, race/ethnicity, gender, and geographic region to identify health disparities and health inequities. Further, trends over time were assessed and compared to state and national averages.
In collaboration with community partners, the CHA will be used to develop a county-wide community health improvement plan (CHIP) in early 2023. The plan will be used to implement community-based changes to improve long-term health and wellness, monitor progress toward goals, and establish new goals in the future.
The CHA can be found on the CDPH website at: https://www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com/publications/
The surveys to collect feedback on community priorities and report suggested edits will be open until January 20th.
