Health Equity Assessment

2018 Health Equity Assessment

The Scott County Health Department, with assistance from a Masters of Public Health intern from George Washington University, compiled data and statistics related to health outcomes for populations living in Scott County.  The data was assessed to identify where health inequities occur; help the community understand the causes of health inequity; identify health outcomes that have the most severe inequities; and identify populations that suffer inequitable health outcomes.  By identifying these factors, the Scott County Health Department, community partners, and the residents of Scott County can understand and implement strategies for health equity that will create a healthier community.
