Our conversation today with Dr. Jeffrey Feit, Valley Health Population & Community Health Officer and Tracy Mitchell, Director, Valley Health Wellness Services centered around how/why Valley Health prioritizes and implements various community health objectives.

Dr. Feit explained the Community Health Needs Assessment that Valley Health conducts every three years. You can take the survey here: valleyhealthlink.com/survey

Tracy told us about the various partnerships with local nonprofits, school systems and area agencies to develop community gardens and distribute the goods to those in need in our community. She also told us about health educators and the role they play in keeping our communities healthy.

During our conversation, Dr. Feit mentioned the Community Benefit Report- which I found fascinating. You can get more details about it here: https://www.valleyhealthlink.com/about-us/our-community-commitment/community-benefit/
