OMMU Weekly Update

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) continues to focus on the health and safety of Florida’s families and is dedicated to ensuring patients have safe access to low-THC cannabis and medical marijuana. We are pleased to provide this weekly update on the DOH Office of Medical Marijuana Use’s (OMMU) diligent work implementing the many requirements in Amendment 2 and those set by the Florida Legislature in section 381.986, F.S. (2018).

A Community Health Assessment (CHA) helps identify the strengths and weaknesses that impact a community’s health. The CHA is the first step in developing a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Escambia County’s next CHIP is planned for publication in 2019.

We would like your input! As part of our CHIP development, we are using a brief CHA survey to learn more how you see the health of our community. Anyone in Escambia County, Florida is welcome to take the survey.
