Six Steps to Performing a Community Health Assessment

A Community Health Assessment is a process of collecting, analyzing, and reporting information about the needs, strengths, and assets in a community. An assessment can document and raise awareness about unmet community needs, identify and prioritize areas for improvements, and create a community-partnered process for drawing on assets to implement health improvements.

Taught by Dr. Amy Carroll-Scott, Assistant Professor at the Dornsife School of Public Health, this online, self-paced training is for public health professionals who work or provide services at the community level, including those at health departments and non-profit organizations.

While the modules of this Community Health Assessment training were meant to build on each other, they can also be viewed in accordance to your organization’s stage of readiness.
