July 28th is World Hepatitis Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about viral hepatitis. Viral hepatitis affects more than 500 million people worldwide. Many people are unaware that they have hepatitis and unknowingly spread the virus to other people. Hepatitis B and C can be spread by exposure to contaminated blood or bodily fluids containing blood through the sharing of: needles, pipes, unsterile body piercing and tattoo equipment, and personal hygiene items, such as razors. If you think you may be at risk, ask to be tested. Treatment is available.

Intervention and Prevention of Ongoing Diseases — I.P.O.D.

01-Intervention-and-Prevention-of-Ongoing-Diseases-IPOD-Cover-Page-graphic-300x202
In order to plan for future programs, the Intervention and Prevention of Ongoing Diseases (IPOD) Committee felt that more sharing of the resources on chronic diseases already available was needed. In conjunction with the Ashtabula County Health Needs Assessment Committee, the IPOD Committee has organized and compiled this information for resources and educational programs that address chronic diseases in Ashtabula County.
The resources and education programs that are listed in this resource guide may assist health and medical professionals in providing their patients with additional opportunity to prevent or reduce the severity of chronic disease that may be affecting them. In December of 2015, the local health departments of Ashtabula County convened a meeting with area health and human services agencies to initially discuss the implementation of a Community Health Needs Assessment of Ashtabula County Residents in 2016. All health and human service agencies at the December 2015 meeting agreed to meet again in 2016 to discuss the importance of completing a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHA) in 2016. In the spring of 2016, it was agreed by all health and human service agencies in attendance at a county health department meeting, that we complete a Community Health Needs Assessment in 2016.
