Healthy Carolinians of the Outer Banks wants your input

The Healthy Carolinians of the Outer Banks (HCOB) is working on the completion of the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment. During this year-long process, community members have participated in surveys and focus groups to provide their feedback on a variety of important health issues and topics. A watch list of potential health priorities was created based on this feedback and after reviewing data specific to Dare County from state and national sources.

The HCOB wants to know how concerned and aware you are regarding the identified watch list items. This information will be used in the HCOB prioritization meeting where the main health priorities for the next three years will be selected.

All surveys must be entered by Monday, March 11 at 5 p.m. Complete the brief survey at www.darenc.com/2018chna. For more information on the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment, contact Kelly Nettnin at 252-475-5036 or kelly.nettnin@darenc.com.
