Despite a growing area of interest and concern, community health needs assessments rarely include sections dedicated to environmental health. Using the Madison County Health Department as a case study, Environmental Health Director Geoffrey Snyder will discuss how to incorporate environmental health factors into a Community Health Assessment. This session will demonstrate how Madison County collects and uses environmental health data for the environmental health section of community needs assessments. This session will also give public health professionals guidance on how to use PACE in the development of environmental health strategies.
