The Jones County Health Department partnering with CarolinaEast Health System, Craven County Health Department and Pamlico County Health Department is conducting a community health assessment for Jones, Craven and Pamlico Counties via the internet. A community health assessment is a process completed every three years by which we gain an understanding of the health concerns, and health care systems of our community. We do this by collecting and analyzing data from both the NC State Center for Health Statistics and the citizens of Jones, Craven, and Pamlico Counties. This information will then provide the basis for discussion and action of the identified health care issues. We thank you for your participation. Please click here to complete the survey.
“Promoting sound health policies within the community, to prevent and control the spread of disease, to facilitate rehabilitation of the disabled and to safeguard the integrity of the environment”
