The 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment Report is now available online at
http://healthytetoncounty.org. Healthy Teton County noted the community’s top community health
issues to be mental health, alcohol, sexual and reproductive health, chronic
disease and cancer screenings, nicotine use, and immunizations for those
65+. The prioritized social determinants of health were severe housing,
access to care, and food insecurity. The 2018 Community Health Implementation
Plan, which outlines the goals and strategies for addressing each identified
issue, will be available later this summer.
This is the second iteration of the Community Health Needs Assessment conducted
by Healthy Teton County, a community health initiative led by Teton County
Health Department and St. John’s Medical Center, with participation
from over 35 local organizations.
