Region G Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan

The Douglas County Health Department is a collaborative partner with Missouri Highlands Heallthcare in their HRSA Delta States Rural Health Development Project Network. It was our goal to strengthen the Region G Health Department's system and to concentrate on capacity building especially by developing and utilizing a closed access intranet; increasing knowledge in regards to accreditation; promoting and developing a regional community health assessment and designing a Region G website.


We worked with John Kraemer, Ph.D., Southeast Missouri State University and Cody Minks, a summer intern student, on the survey and data collection starting in May of 2009. In October of 2009 we hired Peterson and Associates to develop and finalize the report.

OJJDP's Safe Start Center Web Site Wins Design Award

The OJJDP Safe Start Center Web site received a MarCom Gold Award for design. The Web site provides news and resources to practitioners, researchers, and policymakers who work to help children exposed to violence. These children may experience violence as a victim or witness in their home, school, or community. Safe Start Web site resources include links to recent research, reports, Web sites, training manuals, and best practice guidelines for practitioners. Several publications on the site also received MarCom creative awards, including the Center's Issue Brief #2: Pediatric Care Settings, which received a Platinum Award, and Issue Brief #1: Understanding Children's Exposure to Violence and Healing the Invisible Wounds: Children's Exposure to Violence, which received Gold Awards.

The Safe Start Web site was recently redesigned to meet the latest Web standards and best practices. It displays a rotating banner with the latest news, publications, and research about children exposed to violence. In addition, it allows users to interact with the Safe Start Center through links to social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Keeping blood pressure under control is vital for a healthy heart
Blood Pressure
A growing number of Missouri residents are suffering from high blood pressure, one of the major risk factors for heart disease.
More than 29 percent of adults in Missouri reported having high blood pressure in 2007, up from just over 27 percent a decade earlier, according to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The prevalence of high blood pressure is a major reason that heart disease ranks as Missouri’s leading cause of death. State health officials are urging Missourians to get their blood pressure checked regularly to help prevent heart disease.

“Getting your blood pressure checked is one of the simplest – and most important – medical tests you can have done,” said Anita Berwanger, manager of the health department’s Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program. “If your blood pressure is high, you need to take steps to get it under control.”

High blood pressure is sometimes called the “silent killer” because it often has no symptoms until serious problems develop. In addition to damaging the heart, high blood pressure can impair other major organs including the kidneys and eyes.
