Community Health Assessment
A core function of public health is assessment. The purpose of the community health assessment is to learn about the community: the health of the population, contributing factors to higher health risks or poorer health outcomes of identified populations and community resources available to improve the health status.
A community health assessment is a collaborative process of collecting and analyzing data and information for use in educating and mobilizing communities, developing priorities, garnering resources or using resources in different ways, adopting or revising policies and planning actions to improve the population’s health.

This health report is an addendum to the 2022 Crawford County Community Health Assessment (if you'd like to review that, the link for that is below). This Galion-specific addendum was necessary as we work towards becoming a nationally accredited health department. Please view it by clicking this link: Galion CHA addendum.
