(Macon County, MO) – The Adair, Schuyler, Macon and Randolph County Health Departments have come together to distribute a Highway 63 Community Assessment. Each Health Department is run on a local level, however in rural Missouri, we have seen we have shared community members and concerns that might be more effectively addressed when working together.

The goal of this assessment is to find common priorities in each community and strategically plan how those can be addressed, both locally and along the highway 63 corridor.

We share many of the same community members since many people live and work in different counties in our area, or have family in a nearby community. We understand it is sometimes difficult and confusing when local health departments are responding to a problem differently. We hope the results from this community needs assessment can help create consistency in our responses for our communities and for more effective change.

Public Health is here to prevent, promote, and protect the health of our community. The priorities we see as a public health department may not correspond to the health priorities members in our community see. This assessment helps us understand what your priority is and what priorities are trending in our areas.

The assessment will take about 8-10 minutes and is completely confidential. We appreciate your support in taking a few minutes to share your opinions.

The survey can be found on our website at or taken at the Health Department. Thank you for your input!
