(December 16, 2022) – San Miguel County, CO --- San Miguel County Public Health’s community health assessment survey will close to submissions tonight, Friday, December 16 at midnight. Open to residents of San Miguel, Ouray, Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, and Hinsdale counties, the survey feedback will help Public Health understand the strengths and strains of local communities, prioritize services, and ultimately improve population health outcomes.
The survey will inform the priority areas for the next community health improvement plan. Local and regional stakeholders from all six counties, including medical centers and hospitals, community members, behavioral health professionals and more, will be involved in meetings next year to evaluate the survey’s findings and weigh in on the priority health needs of the residents of the West Central Public Health Partnership.
“We have had a great response from our community members over the last two months,” said Public Health Director Grace Franklin. “We want to be sure all of our community members have a say in the goals and priorities for their Public Health services moving forward, this survey presents an important opportunity for all voices to be heard.”
A raffle will be held for survey respondents that live in San Miguel County to win one of three $100 grocery gift cards if they provide contact information at the end of the survey. Those not wishing to provide their name and contact information can submit their assessment anonymously but will not be eligible for the gift card drawing.
The assessment, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, will close to submissions tonight at midnight. Residents can participate by visiting bit.ly/comhealthsurvey for English and bit.ly/saludcom for Spanish.
