Community Health Assessment
The West Suburban Community Health Network Area (CHNA) 18 is a regional coalition of public, nonprofit, and private organizations working together to build healthier communities. With a focus on developing collaborations among community groups and across communities, CHNA 18 serves as a resource for local agencies and organizations to gather information, share ideas, and network on a regular basis. CHNA 18 also offers grant opportunities and educational and training events for public health professionals. Member communities include Brookline, Dedham, Dover, Needham, Newton, Waltham, Wellesley, Weston and Westwood.
In early 2011, the CHNA embarked on a community health assessment in order to understand community needs, identify vulnerable populations and determine gaps in service.
