Public Comment on Washington State Health Assessment open until January 23, 2018
The Department of Health just released the draft version of the Washington State Health Assessment, and we invite you to provide feedback on this document during the public comment period, January 2–23.
The assessment pulls data from a variety of sources, providing insights into Washington’s diverse population, health status and health behaviors, access to healthcare and preventive services, environments, and social and economic forces impacting health and well-being. The assessment also describes statewide assets and resources already in place across Washington that impact health and well-being.
We worked with partners in and beyond the healthcare delivery and public health community to draft a comprehensive assessment of health in our state. We strived to create an inclusive document, and we hope that the trends and information this report highlights lead to rich conversations in communities throughout our state.
Please take some time to review the Washington State Health Assessment and provide public comment through the link in the document. We appreciate and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
You are welcome to share this email. Also, if you'd like us to email you when the assessment is final, sign up here.
