Healthy Teton County invites community members to share ideas about the
health and quality of life in Teton County on a brief survey that is now
available. The survey is part of Healthy Teton County’s "Community
Themes & Strengths Assessment," which gathers residents’
views on the area’s most pressing health issues.
The 5-minute survey is available online at healthytetoncounty.org. The
survey can also be accessed via QR (quick response) codes on flyers posted
in local establishments. Additionally, a paper version of the survey will
be available at community events and meetings throughout the summer.

from different backgrounds prioritize health and quality of life issues.”
Healthy Teton County is a community health initiative led by Teton County
Public Health and St. John’s Medical Center, with participation
from over 25 local organizations.
Three other assessments will take place over the next two months as part
of a broad community health needs assessment. Following completion of

report on its findings as well as a community action plan to address identified
