CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- Every three years the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center hosts the Laramie County community health needs assessment. Today members of the community met to talk about where Laramie County needs the most improvement. The five priority areas are the access to care, housing and income, education, healthy behaviors, and behavioral health, that's according to surveys. Presenter Amy Spieker, mentioned that Laramie County is ranked the 17th healthiest out of Wyoming’s 23 counties.
"Health is beyond what they receive in terms of health care. That health is where we live, learn, work, and play, and those environments that we do that in are really important to how healthy we are both as individuals, and as a community," Spieker said.
Spieker says the goal is to get Laramie county in the top five by 2025. For more information, visit: http://www.laramiecountypartnership.org/
