Put Us On The Map Challenge

City Health Dashboard is a project conducted by NYU Langone Health with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The City Health Dashboard team gathers data pertaining to health and wellness in US cities. Data can be used to inform policy-making and action plans to improve health and wellness in each area. The Put Us On The Map Challenge was recently made available to smaller cities with a population under 50,000. Better Together submitted an application for the city of Nacogdoches and we were approved! Our city's data has been compiled and is now available for viewing here.

Community Health Needs Assessment (2020)

In addition to our local assessment efforts, Better Together commissioned this Community Health Needs Assessment from the F. Marie Hall Institute for Rural and Community Health at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to assist us, our partners, our team members, and local stakeholders in better understanding our health related challenges. As a token of our commitment to collaboration and transparency, we are openly sharing the needs assessment.

We believe that it will be beneficial to everyone who is committed to improving the quality of life in Nacogdoches County.  We hope that you will find the report both informative and useful.
