​Residents Can Help Determine Health Priorities for Wake County

The Community Health Needs Assessment is under way in Wake County, and as part of that effort, we’re asking residents to tell us what they think the county’s health priorities should be for the next three years.  

Community Meetings
Residents have several options to provide input on how the county and its partners can improve overall health and well-being in the county. On Thursday, Jan. 31, residents can participate in one of five in-person meetings from 6–7 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Northern Regional Center, 350 E. Holding Ave., Wake Forest;
  • Holly Springs Cultural Center, 300 W. Ballentine St., Holly Springs;
  • Anne Gordon Center, 1901 Spring Forest Road, Raleigh;
  • Apex Town Hall, 73 Hunter St, Apex; and
  • Eastern Regional Center, 1002 Dogwood Drive, Zebulon.

Online Voting
Beginning Monday, Feb. 4, residents may vote online by visiting wakegov.com/wellbeing through Friday, Feb. 15. Additionally, many of the more than 60 community partners that are a part of the CHNA will offer voting opportunities through other events over the next two weeks.

The CHNA is conducted every three years to determine what priorities the county and its partners should pursue to improve the overall health and well-being of the county. The assessment involves analyzing health data and statistics, as well as input from residents and professional and non-profit providers, to create a report to the community used to guide decision making for the next three years.

Learn more about the CHNA by visiting wakegov.com/wellbeing.

The CHNA is a collaborative effort among Wake County, WakeMed, Duke Raleigh Hospital, UNC Rex Healthcare, Advance Community Health, The United Way of the Greater Triangle and Wake County Medical Society Community Health Foundation. The process is overseen by a steering committee comprised of more than 60 community partners including local governments, hospitals, schools, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, businesses and other stakeholders.
