Please Take a Look at Your Community Dashboard

What makes a healthy community? Please take a look at the community dashboard and Healthy People 2020 data provided on this website. A multitude of issues combine to determine the health of a community. In addition to diseases, community health is affected by substance abuse, educational attainment, economic status, environmental issues and the personal choices of the people who make up that community. No one single hospital, agency or governmental body can be entirely responsible for the health of its community. No organization can address the multitude of issues alone.

Memorial Health System hopes you will review the community dashboards provided here for Sangamon, Logan and Christian counties, as well as the county demographics, Healthy People 2020 Tracker and many other features. This information may help your organization identify ways you can work with others in your community to address issues and improve health outcomes. When reviewing data, please be sure to select the county in the drop-down box that you wish to review.
