Three studies were recently conducted in our community in order to better understand the health needs and concerns of Gillespie County citizens. The following three groups partnered to conduct these studies:
The Gillespie County Health Board
The Gillespie County Translational Advisory Board (TAB), a local committee with aims to improve the health of our community
The University of Texas School of Public Health, San Antonio Regional Campus Community Outreach Resource Center
The three studies conducted were:
A focused study on the issue of teen pregnancy in our community
An assessment of suicide and mental health resources in our community
The Gillespie County Community Health Survey, a general health survey of local leaders to define the major health needs and concerns of our community
