County Seeking Community Input on Multi-Year Health Improvement Plan

PHOENIX (January 25, 2017) – Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) is seeking the public's input on defining its health priorities for a three-year plan that will be implemented starting in 2018. Various public meetings are being held throughout the county where the public will be presented with the top 10 health priorities that have come out of this year's assessment and asked to whittle them down to the top 3-5.

"This has been a collaborative process every step of the way. Over the last year, our team, along with various partners, has been gathering information from residents of Maricopa County in the form of surveys and focus groups," said Dr. Bob England, director of Maricopa County Public Health. "Our final step is to go back to the community with all that we have heard and ask for their assistance in completing our second community health assessment in 5 years."

All sessions will provide snacks & refreshments, free childcare service, Spanish interpretation and are ADA-accessible.
