How was the CHA done?

Epidemiologists with the Health Department analyzed data on a wide variety of health indicators, including rates of illness and disease, causes of death, health risks and promotive behaviors, and social and environmental determinants of health. From October to December 2022, the project team presented data to a 15-person committee consisting of community members representing cities, schools, healthcare, nonprofits, human services, libraries, community organizations, and the Tulalip Tribes.

Epidemiologists then systematically reviewed the data and re-presented to the data committee with 40 indicators that showed need for improvement. Over the course of three voting rounds and discussion, the committee narrowed down to the top six health priorities.
