Community Health Assessments
During the years 2017 and 2018 Two Rivers Public Health Department underwent a community health assessment process. The results of this process are presented in three different reports: a strategic plan, a community health assessment, and a community health improvement plan.
Our Community Health Assessment is a report only filled with the information that we gathered.
We’ve also scoured the web for other resources that may help you in understanding the health of our area.
County Health Rankings Data and State Community Health Assessment
The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The RWJF believes America can become a nation where getting healthy, staying healthy, and making sure our children grow up healthy are top priorities.
Annual County Health Rankings measure vital health factors to rank each county within each state. This ranking is done nationwide in order to compare counties in each state. The rankings listed below show how the counties in the Two Rivers Public Health District relate to other counties in Nebraska.
