Residents Encouraged To Participate In Douglas County Community Health Survey
by Melissa Blosser, Douglas County Community Relations
MINDEN, Nev. — Recognizing that the health of the community is everyone’s responsibility, Douglas County officials are currently partnering with public health, healthcare agencies and other partners to produce a Community Health Needs Assessment.
The purpose of this assessment is to identify and prioritize community assets and needs in order to develop ways to improve the health of Douglas County residents in the future.
Our health and well-being are products of not only the healthcare we receive and the choices we make, but also the places where we live, learn, work, and play.
As an essential part of this health assessment, we are asking residents for their feedback on the current health status of the community. Carson Valley Medical Center and the Regional Public Health Partnership between Douglas County and Carson City Health and Human Services have partnered with the University of Nevada School of Medicine to develop a survey that will be available from April 4 – May 6, 2016.
Douglas County encourages all who represent the broad interests of our diverse community to participate in this survey. The feedback, comments and concerns of community members are vital to identifying health needs and planning for future programs and activities that improve the community’s health.
Take the survey today at www.surveymonkey.com/r/CarsonValley2016!
