Hamilton County Health Department Releases 2024 Health Assessment in Local News

In Hamilton County, the 2024 A Picture of Our Health Community Health Assessment has been published by the Health Department. The report is released every 4-5 years and focuses on eight key factors that impact residents’ overall health. These factors include access to healthcare and coverage, environmental health, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, mental health, injuries, substance abuse, and vulnerable populations.

The report provides a detailed description of Hamilton County residents’ health status. The Health Department and the Regional Health Council will collaborate to develop strategies aimed at improving the community’s health and well-being. They will also identify health priorities and engage the community in addressing these issues. Dr. Dawn Ford, Epidemiology Department Manager, emphasizes the importance of the 175-page assessment in identifying ways to reduce disease prevalence in the community. She hopes that community members will make positive changes in their behaviors such as exercising more, eating healthier, and quitting smoking.

Additionally, the Epidemiology Department plans to release more informational materials on the topics covered in A Picture of Our Health. In the coming years, a data dashboard will be created and published to provide accurate and timely local health information to the community. This initiative aims to empower residents with knowledge about their health status so they can make informed decisions about their well-being.
