Virtual coffee table lets Chippewa Valley residents choose top health priorities

EAU CLAIRE, Wisconsin (WEAU) – Communicable diseases, mental health and other hot topics will be on the virtual coffee table in February when Chippewa Valley health partners ask the public to choose their top priorities on the issue health.

A series of online community conversations will allow residents of Chippewa and Eau Claire counties to weigh in on key health issues in their home, work or any convenient location due to the pandemic.

The discussions follow the recent collection of health surveys from area residents and represent the next step in a community health assessment that takes place every three years.

A total of six conversations – three for each county – will take place on the 9th, 10th and

11.

The events will provide residents with a preview of the results of the community health survey, as well as the opportunity to earn a Visa gift card for their participation.

In addition, the community conversations will provide comparisons of data at county, state and country levels in 14 different health areas – from healthy nutrition and drug use to injury and violence prevention.

After reviewing the survey and secondary data, participants will be asked to vote on their top three health issues.

Survey and online community results

The conversations will be reviewed by local health coalitions – the Chippewa Health Improvement Partnership and Eau Claire Healthy Communities – to help prioritize and plan strategy around community needs.

Although COVID-19 poses challenges to the assessment process, online meetings can make it easier for many people to get involved, according to Melissa Ives, community health assessment project manager.

“You don’t have to go anywhere this year to participate in these conversations,” Ives said. “Public buy-in is vital to making the kinds of changes needed to improve the health of the community, so we want to make participating in this process as convenient as possible.”

Anyone can register for one of the virtual community conversations by registering online at bit.ly/ChippConversation or bit.ly/ECconversation or by calling 715-559-6980.
