Community Health Needs Assessment

To better understand the needs of our neighbors, UT Health Athens representatives regularly conduct a local Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The information collected through interviews with a variety of community members lets us determine where to allocate extra resources and what outreach programs are important for the health of Henderson County.
