Assessment, Planning, and Communications (APC) is a core public health service put in place to identify, evaluate, and understand conditions of public health importance, including: chronic and communicable disease; environmental hazards; health disparities; determinants of health; and injury.

APC helps determine what strategies are needed to improve the health of all, public health priorities in the communities it serves, and the appropriate means in communicating this information to our communities.

San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) has launched its next Community Health Assessment, with the goal of completing the process and releasing its Public Health Improvement plan by mid-year 2018. The Community Health Assessment includes numerous engagement opportunities for local community members to provide feedback on public health issues.

SJBPH will publicize opportunities for engagement on this website, through local media outlets and via email to those who have provided contact information. Please click here to share your contact information and express your interest in participating in the assessment process. Please include Community Health Assessment in the subject line of your email.
