The foundation of community health improvement is the data that drives our decisions. In 2018, the Whatcom County Health Department and the Healthy Whatcom team completed a community health assessment and seven community health snapshots that describe how healthy people are in Whatcom County.
This countywide report assesses health outcomes and the underlying factors that affect the health of Whatcom County’s residents.
A closer look at how health varies across Whatcom County, these snapshots dive into health and well-being in each of the county’s seven school districts.
Measuring health is more than just knowing disease rates. We used a Population Health Framework to build our comprehensive health assessments.
