The results of the report provide your community with an understanding of the community's health status and ensure that the community's priorities consider specific health status issues, such as high diabetes death rates or low immunization rates".

Board members include volunteers who are appointed by the BOCC and represent healthcare consumers; healthcare providers, including physicians, dentists and nurse; mental health services; community health organizations; hospitals and the health department.
