Healthy Yolo is a collaborative, participatory effort that aims to engage and mobilize the community so they may have a voice in addressing public health issues. Healthy Yolo seeks to describe health characteristics of our community, analyze causal factors of health, and devise and implement programs to maintain or improve the health and well-being of all.
Health Care Access Survey
In order to get up to date information regarding health care utilization and access issues, the Healthy Yolo project conducted a Health Care Access Survey from August to October of 2014. Surveys were distributed to medical providers, food distribution centers, the library, county social and health service locations and a few faith-based organizations.
579 surveys were completed during that time and the results are available below in a graphical format, executive summary and full report.
The Community Health Assessment plays a fundamental role in identifying strategic issues and consequently evaluating and developing policies and programs aimed at improving the health and well-being of Yolo County residents. The Community Health Assessment is broken down into seven Regional Reports (including video presentations and Spanish translations).The Community Health Assessment utilized information from four community health assessment reports.
Based on the findings of the Community Health Assessment, Healthy Yolo identified the following as health priorities for Yolo County residents.
The Healthy Yolo project is now conducting work groups on each of the three priority issues in order to inform the creation of a Community Health Improvement Plan. For more information on the individual work groups, please follow the links below:
