Community Health Surveying to Begin

September 13th, 2017|Categories: Press Releases|0 Comments

Delaware, OH – In the next several weeks, nearly 3,600 adults living in Delaware County will be receiving a health survey by mail through The Partnership for a Healthy Delaware County (The Partnership) as part of the Delaware General Health District’s community health assessment process.

The Partnership is working closely with the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio to conduct the survey. Residents will be randomly selected to participate in surveys divided into two age groups, including parents of children under 11 years and adults 19 years and older.

The anonymous survey asks participants to answer questions about general health, risk and protective health factors and access to health care. These answers will create a snapshot of the health of Delaware County adults and children. The results will guide many public and private agencies in their program planning over the next several years by identifying key health problems.

The Partnership asks residents who receive this health survey to please complete it and send it back as soon as possible. Survey answers are anonymous and confidential. The survey is funded by the Delaware General Health District, OhioHealth Grady Memorial Hospital and United Way of Delaware County.

The Partnership is a group of agency directors, organizations, businesses and residents representing multiple sectors of Delaware County – from healthcare to business and industry to the schools to churches.
