In Hamilton County, the Health Department has recently released its 2024 A Picture of Our Health Community Health Assessment. This report is published every 4-5 years and focuses on eight key factors that affect the health of residents in the county. These factors include access to healthcare and coverage, environmental health, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, mental health, injuries, substance abuse, and vulnerable populations.

The assessment offers a detailed description of the health status of Hamilton County residents. With this information in hand, the Health Department and Regional Health Council will collaborate to develop strategies aimed at improving the community’s health and well-being. They will identify health priorities and engage the community on these issues. The Epidemiology Department of the Health Department plans to release additional informative materials on topics covered in A Picture of Our Health. Furthermore, a data dashboard will be created and published in the coming years to provide accurate and timely local health information to the community.

Dr. Dawn Ford, Epidemiology Department Manager, emphasizes the importance of this 175-page assessment in guiding efforts to reduce the impact of these diseases. She hopes that community members will adopt healthier behaviors such as increased exercise, better nutrition, and cessation of smoking to improve overall health outcomes.
