Listening Tour Videos
This video playlist summarizes what we learned from the Listening Tour sessions.
Cottage Population Health started by listening -- to those who work on the front lines of health and our community partners. The thoughts and perspectives shared during the Cottage Health Listening Tour gave insight into the health needs of specific areas in our communities and helped identify opportunities to improve health outcomes.
Conducted with the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment, the Cottage Health Listening Tour included more than twenty focus groups and interviews with health providers, nonprofit workers, educators, government leaders, faith leaders, business owners and members of the community. Learn more about what we heard during the Listening Tour from the participants and in the summary findings.
In addition, more than eighty participants responded to a follow-up survey that provided feedback and helped prioritize health needs identified during the Listening Tour. Find out how participants ranked health indicators based on need, urgency, and collaboration among community organizations.
During the Listening Tour, we heard the voices of our community members, especially the most vulnerable. These conversations helped to identify and prioritize the most important health concerns in specific areas, partner with appropriate nonprofits who share that vision, and implement plans that will have the greatest impact.
