Lawrence County Health Department is working in collaboration with other county agencies to complete a Community Health Assessment. As you may know, our county ranks 88th in the state (out of 88 counties) for health. We'd like to change that, and we're asking Lawrence County residents 18 years of age and older to complete the survey. We'll use the results of the survey to make a plan to help us become a healthier community with healthier residents. The survey should only take a few moments to complete. Thank you for your time.
Lawrence County Medical Reserve Corps is looking for volunteers to help with some FUN projects. If you are interested, please contact us at 740-532-3962.
