Community input needed!


You are invited to COMPASS Now 2021’s La Crosse County Community Needs Stakeholder Meeting on Friday, February 12 (7:30 to 9:00 a.m.) and Monday, February 15 (3:30 to 5:00 p.m.) via Zoom. 

The purpose of this meeting is to help identify and prioritize the most critical needs in our County. Your input will become part of the Compass Now 2021 Report. The Compass Now report is used to develop important programs, interventions, and policies by local hospitals, health centers, health departments and is used in policy and development by state and local leaders. This report is a key piece of our Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Planning Process. This is an opportunity to share your perspective on the most critical issues and needs facing the county. 

To participate, register via Eventbrite:

* February 12 registration 

February 15 registration

Participants will receive an advance copy of the data collected for the La Crosse County Compass Now 2021 report. During the meeting, we’ll have short brainstorming discussions on the top community needs within each of the sections of Compass: Length & Quality of Life; Health Behaviors; Health Care; Social & Economic Factors; and Physical Environment & Safety. And then have a series of votes to eventually boil those ideas down to the top five needs of the county.

If you are unable to attend, please consider sending someone from your organization in your absence. Also, please feel free to share this invitation with others. Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me or Liz Evans, Community Impact Director-Great Rivers United Way, at levans@gruw.org
