State Health Assessment Regional Forum Invitation

The Ohio Department of Health and the Health Policy Institute of Ohio invite you to participate in Ohio's next State Health Assessment (SHA) by attending one of five regional community forums in October, 2018. Locations, registration information, dates and times are provided in the attached flyer.

We hope that you will take one or more of the following actions:

  • Register and attend one of the regional forums
  • Forward the flyer to others who may be interested in attending (a list of sectors from which we would like input is included at the bottom of this email)
  • If you are unable to attend one of the forums, but would still like to provide input on the State Health Assessment and State Health Improvement Plan, sign up to receive more information through the this link.

Each forum will have two parts:

  • 9:30 am to 12:30 pm: Main SHA regional forum
  • 1:00 to 3:00 pm: Maternal and child health supplement (more in-depth discussion about maternal, infant and child health issues to inform the state’s Maternal and Child Health block grant and Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) grant

These forums are hosted and facilitated by the Health Policy Institute of Ohio (HPIO) and the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio, on behalf of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). ODH has contracted with HPIO to facilitate these forums.

We hope you can join us to provide input on the 2019 SHA and the next State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP).  HPIO will post information about the State Health Assessment (SHA) on our website. We look forward to your participation in this process.
