The Darke County General Health District in partnership with Wayne Hospital is currently conducting a comprehensive community health assessment or CHA. The process consists of meetings held with key stakeholders who discuss health issues within our community. The key stakeholders represent a wide range of residents, from young to old, sick or healthy, rich or poor. The stakeholders come from a variety of sectors that have an impact on community health. A few examples are education professionals, social workers, medical professionals and even law enforcement.

We are looking for a few great people who reside in Darke County and who can help us better understand the reality of things like access to health care, mental health and substance abuse and issues of care for our aging population. You, our residents, and your first hand experiences, are what we need to know how to work on the problems and make things better.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 17th at 2:00 pm at Wayne Hospital in the conference room on the 3rd floor. We encourage and welcome you to attend to tell us about how your health is affected by the issues in our community. Also, if you would like to participate in a professional capacity because your daily work impacts the health of the community, we will be glad to see you there as well. If you are unable to attend but would like to share some ideas, feel free to call us.
