JANUARY, 2015: The SRO has spent the past several months assisting with community health needs assessments throughout the state. The most recent survey of Sangamon County residents finds that the top health priority areas in the county are mental health, child abuse, overweight/obesity, and access to care. To see the complete report, CHNA_Brief (PDF). The SRO is now conducting focus groups among Enos Park residents (a neighborhood in Sangamon County) for Memorial Health Systems and HSHS St. John’s Hospital to identify ways to improve access to care among the neighborhood’s residents.
