2016 Community Health Needs Assessment Published by Iredell Health System

Every three years, leaders from Iredell Health System work with the Iredell County Public Health Department, experts in the field, and local agencies to review the health needs of our community and compile a plan of action. The action plan is published as the Iredell Health System Community Health Needs Assessment and is now available on our website.

Iredell Health System, in collaboration with the Iredell County Health Department, assessed the
community health needs of Iredell County. The most prevalent and significant health issues in
Iredell County are related to chronic diseases, healthy eating and active living, and risky behaviors.

The 2016 Iredell Health System community health initiatives are to increase awareness by providing and directing the access to screening for colorectal cancer and education, and to increase the promotion and awareness of healthy living and diabetes education. The principle focus of the initiative is to educate the community, including at-risk populations, on the importance of healthy living and annual health screenings.

We encourage you to read the entire report.
