Further Community Characterization
Signs in languages other than English
Once the community is defined, does that mean the community cannot be redefined during the public health assessment process?
Communities are always changing. The health assessor must be prepared
to redefine and recognize any new concerns of a changing community. New
industries in the area might result in new people moving quickly into
the area just as business closures sometimes result in people leaving
the area. New findings at the site might generate new interest from groups
or individuals who were not interested or concerned about the site before
the new findings.
