Working Together to Solve Big Problems

Utah has one of the healthiest populations in the United States. Yet persistent problems like diabetes, suicide, opioid addiction, and limited rural health care access continue to plague the state. Community engagement gives us the opportunity to address these issues.

Every three years, we join a broad coalition of community representatives, civic leaders, nonprofit organizations, and residents to identify our greatest health needs. The resulting Community Health Needs Assessment outlines our collective priorities—and then becomes our north star.

In effect, the CHNA helps us understand what the community's health needs are. This invaluable gold mine of information helps us improve quality of life, health, and well-being in Utah. Working together, we can have the biggest impact on the communities we serve.
