2015 Monroe County Health Assessment

The Monroe County Building Healthy Communities Coalition is pleased to present the 2015 Monroe County Community Health Assessment.  The Community Health Assessment is a result of a survey of Monroe County adults and youth conducted in the spring of 2015.  The survey results were then combined with multiple secondary data sources to present a snapshot of the health of Monroe County residents. The data presented in the report provides insight into Monroe County’s community structure in the areas of physical, mental and social health and includes comparisons against state and national data.  The assessment will provide valuable information to community organizations and agencies as they develop strategies and direct resources that will focus on wellness, access to care and unmet community needs.  For more information, please contact Jamie Dean, Building Healthy Communities Coalition Chair at 734-240-7810 or jamie_dean@monroemi.org.
