OMMU Weekly Update - Sept. 21, 2018

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).

To better understand the problems facing our community, a health assessment is completed every three years. Led by the Live Well Partnership for a Healthy Community with support from the Florida Department of Health in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) includes input from residents, an analysis of data on chronic disease and the leading causes of death in our community, and discussions with community leaders to identify the most pressing health issues. More information about our current CHNA, and where we are in the assessment process, can be found on the LiveWellNWFL.org website.
