Walton Wellness to present the Community Health Needs Assessment at the Dec. 7 Walton County BOC meeting

DeDe Harris, executive director of Walton Wellness, inc. will present a recent survey that reveals the wellness of the community and health needs of Walton County residents. It compares the health and wellness of the Walton County Community to the state and surrounding counties as well as the make up of the community profile of its three major cities.

The comprehensive results can be found at this link.

Information in the survey notes the major factors that impact the health landscape of the county, including health behaviors, access to quality medical care, socioeconomic factors and the physical environment.

“This document is the summary and culmination of countless hours of analyzing health data across Walton County. It indicates what we see as the top 10 health needs of our county, along with the nuanced factors that affect these health issues and community resources for residents,” Alex Lundy, education coordinator for Walton Wellness said in advance of the Dec. 1 release date. “This document is a deep dive into Walton County deaths, ER visits, and hospital admits by diagnosis, stratified by both gender and race. We feel strongly that making this data publicly available in this manner will be invaluable for anyone working within any niche of the healthcare landscape in the county. There is so much to be learned from this data in order to most effectively impact the health of Walton County’s residents.”

This will be presented at the last 2021 meeting of the Walton County BOC that takes place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2021 ant the Historic Courthouse located at 111 South Broad Street in Monroe.
