Community Health Themes and Strengths Assessment
The focus of this survey is to learn about our community’s assets, concerns, and services provided, as well as identify any gaps. The survey was designed for public input from the city of Bismarck and Burleigh County residents to learn about our community’s health needs. In this survey “Community” means where you live and interact with people. The opinion survey opened February 1, 2012 and closed March 1, 2012.

The Community Health Status Assessment is data compiled, within our community, that identifies priority community health issues, as well as, quality of life issues. The data will help our community answer the following questions:

Forces of Change Assessment
Go! Bismarck Mandan, our local coalition working to build a healthier community, used the CHANGE tool to understand feedback on actions that should be developed and implemented to transform communities into those that support healthy living.
CHANGE provides a snapshot of policy, systems and environments over five modules: Physical Activity, Nutrition, Tobacco, Chronic Disease Management, and Leadership. With CHANGE data as a guide, you can map out a course for health improvement in your community with specific, targeted action. As a result, it helps communities to assess potential approaches that are innovative as well as approaches that show strong evidence of effectiveness.
