Health department releases community assessment

Friday, May 20, 2022 by Tai Moses

Austin Public Health has published its 2022 Community Health Assessment for Austin-Travis County, “a compilation of data, interviews, focus groups, listening sessions, and social media campaigns” that “sheds light on the social and economic context, community health issues, and community visions of residents.” In her request for feedback on the assessment, APH Director Adrienne Sturrup noted that, “While research and studies are important for our work as a health department, they only get us so far. We need input from our community. Taking time to submit feedback will help you, your family and your neighbors.” The assessment helps APH form its policies and health goals for the next three years. Review the complete assessment here and leave feedback on SpeakUp Austin.
