What is Healthy Yolo? 

In 2013 the Yolo County Community Health Branch staff initiated a Community Health Assessment that led to the identification of three priority areas: Mental Health, Chronic Disease Prevention, and Healthy Aging. Work groups, comprised of County and community partners, convened around each of these priorities and developed the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Keeping in mind the guiding principles of health equity, social determinants of health, life course perspective, and upstream investments, the work groups are working towards collective impact.

Community Health Assessment - Input Needed!

Help inform the next Community Health Assessment by filling out the Community Health Status Survey available in English, Spanish, and Russian. Any Yolo County resident is eligible to complete it and our goal is to ensure all voices are heard. They survey asks questions about your health and the health of the community. 

The Community Health Assessment is a process conducted by your local health department (Health and Human Services Community Health Branch), Sutter Davis, Woodland Memorial Hospital, CommuniCare Health Centers and Winters Health Care to better understand the needs of the community. We deeply appreciate your time as we know it is valuable. This survey should take about 10 minutes and anyone who completes the survey and chooses to include contact information will be eligible to win one of 10 $30 Visa gift cards.
