Legislator Jacobs Encourages Residents to Complete Online Health Survey

Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) encourages residents to take a few moments and complete the Nassau County Department of Health online survey to help develop the Community Health Assessment (CHA) for the years 2010- 2013. This document is compiled every four to five years to track the current health of the community.

The survey will ask Nassau County residents about their health and thoughts on societal issues they believe affect their health and wellbeing.

“This survey is important because it will enable the Department of Health, who will be reviewing it, to help direct public health priorities towards a healthier Nassau for the coming years,” said Legislator Jacobs. “It only takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete and it’s anonymous.”

The online CHA survey (in English and Spanish) will be available until June 8, 2009 and can be found on the Department of Health homepage at http://www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Health/. Click on the Community Health Assessment Survey link to get started.
