A community driven effort to improve health and wellness in the  Heart of Illinois.    

Forces of Change Assessment

The Forces of Change Assessment is aimed at identifying forces such as trends, factors, or events that are or will be influencing the health and quality of life of the community and the work of the local public health system.  The group reviewed the components of FOCA, completed SWOT analysis for the community and the public health system. 

Once the analysis were completed, the groups participated in a round robin exercise to look and analyze different categories to include economic, ethical, legal, political, scientific, social and technical topics.  The participants were able to identify forces of change that affect the overall health and well-being of Woodford County residents.
Each of the three counties conducted this assessment individually on different days.
