What is Population Health?

The Division of Population Health is a newly structured division within Tooele County Health Department. This division includes (02) two main public health sections within the Health Department: Epidemiology and Health Equity. This division was created in August 2022. The Population Health Division supports different divisions within TCHD in terms of finding the best data sources for specific programs, and the best tools to collect, analyze, interpret, and present data for our community leaders and coalition groups. The Population Health Team Lead is part of the administration team and ensures that the leadership team is up to date on new infectious diseases. The Epidemiology subsection of population health collects and analyzes data from local and state data sources to determine best practices to address public health concerns in Tooele County. Within the Health Equity subsection, under the direction of the Health Equity Coordinator, there are (04) four Community Health Workers (CHWs) who provide support to Public Health Nurses, Emergency Management Planners, Aging Services, vaccination clinics, and the WIC clinics in the Tooele Valley and Wendover. Our CHWs are known for the incredible role they play in our community and for connecting people with available resources.
