The 2018 Upper Peninsula Community Health Needs Assessment, a project completed in August 2018 by Western U.P. Health Department with support from 31 partners including health departments, hospitals, clinics, behavioral health and substance abuse agencies, and health foundations, provides a wealth of information on the health status and needs of the UP’s 310,000 residents. The full report, and 15 two-page handouts with county-level data, are available to view or download here.
