Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. We know that taking care of ourselves by eating well and staying active, not smoking, getting the recommended immunizations and screening tests, and seeing a doctor when we are sick all influence our health. Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships. A community-driven assessment provides the data and information that allows us to take action and develop goals and strategies that can contribute to long-lasting social changes and positive health outcomes. The “Partnership for Healthy Communities” is a planning initiative led by Centra, Centra Foundation, the Community Access Network, and the Central Virginia and Piedmont Health Districts in collaboration with the Bedford Community Health Foundation, Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation, and United Way of Central Virginia. These partners are committed to regional alignment of a collaborative and rigorous needs assessment process that will result in action-oriented solutions to improve the health of the communities they serve. 

It is a priority for us to hear from YOU, the families we serve in Cumberland County.  Please consider taking the 2018 Southside Area Community Health Survey via the link below. The survey will be available through June 15, 2018 for all residents, 18 years of age and older, living in the Piedmont Health District.  Our target population includes medically underserved, low-income or minority populations and those suffering from chronic disease however all living in the Piedmont Health District area are encouraged to complete the survey, which may be completed at the following link: www.centrahealth.com/CHN A.

Please help us become a healthier community by taking the survey and letting us know what you need to be the healthiest you and your family can be!  This data will help us bring strong resources and partnerships to our community and your input is a valuable part of the solution.
