Process for Selecting Priority Strategies

The SHAC reviewed the 2018 Community Health Assessment data in comparison of other community health assessments to determine priority areas for Clay County. Once the priority areas were distinguished the health department took the findings to different workgroups within the county to determine what has been working well and what we would like to see happen within the county. We were also able to look at the 2018-19 Hayesville Schools Pride survey data to determine problem areas that are impacting our youth.
