What’s your vision of a healthier future? What helps you to be healthy and what gets in the way? What can we do to improve or help you to live your best life?
These are the questions at the heart of Columbia Pacific CCO’s story collection survey. Across the communities we serve, more than 1,250 people shared their experiences of health and well-being with Community Advisory Council members, staff and community partners from September through November. The stories we collected covered a variety of subjects, including food access and nutrition, housing, access to prescriptions or providers, mental health and many other topics. The results of the survey will be included in Columbia Pacific CCO’s Community Health Improvement Plan, which will guide our community health improvement investments from 2020-2025.
Community members will have several opportunities to see the results and weigh in on what to prioritize in the Community Health Improvement Plan. Columbia Pacific CCO in partnership with Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, has developed a community road show to reveal the survey results and population data, and to give an opportunity to vote on health priority areas.
The road show will have a kick-off each in Seaside on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at the Seaside Public Library; 1131 Broadway, Seaside. Register here: https://bit.ly/2GYO0xn.
