Bristol Community Health Assessment Kick Off

January 15, 2020

Bristol Virginia partners are conducting a community health assessment (CHA) and want to hear from you! Please visitis.gd/MountRogers to take the community survey and share your feedback about Bristol's strengths and challenges. The survey asks about top concerns in the community, such as food access, mental health, education and transportation. Results will help to identify unique challenges and issues in Bristol. In addition to the survey results, analysts will review public health data to help create an accurate assessment of community health. TheCHA team will then draft a plan and timeline for addressing the community’s needs in the years ahead. Interested in participating? We'd love to have you! Contact breanne.forbes-hubbard@vdh.virginia.gov.

Partner agencies include the City of Bristol, People, Inc., Bristol Organizations, Bristol’s Promise, Southwest Virginia Medical Reserve Corps, Southwest Community Healthcare System, Healing Hands, United Way of Bristol, Bristol Redevelopment and Housing Authority, Bristol Virginia Public Schools, Ballad Health, Bristol Sheriff’s Office, Bristol Chamber of Commerce, Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center, Crossroads Medical Mission, and the Virginia Department of Health.
