Health Workgroup

The health of the GroWNC population, if measured only in terms of the frequency of illness or disease (morbidity) and the number of deaths (mortality), is relatively consistent with the health of the U.S. and North Carolina populations, with a few exceptions.

Existing plans, data, and studies were collected, analyzed, and synthesized into an Existing Conditions Report for each topic. Here is a link to the Health and Wellness Chapter if you’d like to read more. Workgroups were formed around each topic area to review existing conditions, identify issues and goals, and recommend strategies. To learn more about the background of this topic, read the Existing Conditions Report and review the workgroup’s meeting notes and related information on this page. The goals identified by all the workgroups are listed in the GroWNC Regional Plan on pages 29-37.
