2020 Community Health and Happiness Survey

In 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Vincent Health, Lake County Public Health Agency, and Lake County Build a Generation came together to conduct a public health planning process that was collaborative, inclusive, and incorporated lessons learned throughout that difficult year. The ensuing Implementation Plan was informed by a community-wide well-being survey, two community meetings reviewing survey findings and prioritizing health issues, and an analysis that identified local capacity and opportunities for collaboration to address each identified health area.
