The American Heart Association (AHA) Community Health Assessment Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to conducting community health assessments and developing improvement plans. This resource outlines the necessary steps and strategies for effectively engaging with communities to address health issues.

In honor of Community Health Promotion Week, which took place from June 10th to 14th, the AHA released new case studies showcasing how hospitals have successfully used the toolkit to make a positive impact in their communities. One such example is BJC HealthCare, which has taken an innovative approach to promoting health and wellness among community members.

BJC HealthCare focuses on various aspects of health, including financial health and wellness, school health and wellness, infant and maternal health, and access to healthy food options for people with diabetes. Through collaboration and dedicated efforts, they strive to inspire community members to prioritize their health every day.
