Community Health Assessment Survey, Available Sept. 1-30

Today, September 1, is the kickoff day for the 2023 Cleveland County Community Health Assessment to identify current and emerging health issues in Cleveland County.  Leadership for the assessment is provided by the Cleveland County Health Department as part of the local health department accreditation process and also as part of the Consolidated Agreement with the NC Division of Public Health. 

The survey is open from September 1 through September 30, 2023. 

Conducting a community survey is part of the assessment process.  This year’s survey was developed by a Core Oversight Committee composed of community representatives and meets the standard requirements of the Division of Public Health.  Survey responses are confidential.  Survey results will be compiled into a document set for publication in early 2024.
