The Onondaga County Health Department has launched the 2019 Community Engagement Survey and wants to hear from Onondaga County residents about health issues that matter to you. Onondaga County Executive, Ryan McMahon encourages residents to share their views by filling out the Community Engagement Survey. “The Community Engagement Survey helps us identify the health priorities of Onondaga County residents. The results will be used to set goals that will lead to the development of strategies to positively impact the health of our community, especially as we work to tackle the issue of poverty.” The 2019 Community Engagement Survey is now available online at: ongov.net/health in both English and in Spanish.
Onondaga County Health Commissioner, Dr. Indu Gupta, explained “The Community Engagement Survey asks questions on mental health, alcohol, chronic disease, cancer screening, and other important health related issues. This initiative is led by the Onondaga County Health Department in collaboration with local hospitals, and multiple community based organizations. The goal is to create a long-term plan and systematic approach to improve the health of community residents.” Dr. Gupta also shared that Health Department staff will be conducting engagement activities directly with community members and stakeholders to further help understand their health-related priorities.
All survey responses will remain anonymous and will not be shared. As a thank you, participants can register to win a prize! The survey will be open until May 31, 2019. For more information, or questions about the survey, call the Onondaga County Health Department at 315.435.3280.
