Community Nutrition Assessment

CHSR is working with Glens Falls Hospital as part of a Department of Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play.


Evaluation and Research


CHSR’s role is to conduct focus groups and surveys of residents of Washington and Warren Counties to collect data about the challenges they face in eating healthy foods. Glens Falls Hospital will use this information to develop an intervention to attempt to increase consumption of healthy foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. Three focus groups have been conducted and 500 in-person surveys are being administered in Fall 2013.
