Our community is working together to improve health and wellness in Williamson County. Health care providers, faith-based organizations, public health, school districts, non-profit organizations, local governments and community members are working together to address health issues where we live, learn, work and play.

Today marks the kick-off of the first phase of the Community Heath Assessment (CHA), which engages community members and local public health system partners to collect and analyze health-related data from many sources. A survey is now available to collect the community’s feedback on what they believe are the most pressing health needs for Williamson County. The feedback will be used to inform decision-making, prioritize health issues, and assist in the development and implementation of Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).

Surveys in English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean are available at: www.healthywilliamsoncounty.org/cha. Paper surveys are available by emailing wcchd-info@wilco.org.

Community involvement and engagement is critical throughout the entire CHA/CHIP process. Williamson County community-based organizations may request a presentation on CHA/CHIP progress by emailing hwc@wilco.org.
