Adult residents of Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties encouraged to share thoughts regarding local healthcare
WATERTOWN, NY —– The Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization (FDRHPO), in partnership with the North Country Health Compass Partners, will begin making calls to community members for its 2021 Community Health Survey on Thursday, May 26, 2021.
Completed on an annual basis, the survey asks local adults about their thoughts and experiences with healthcare. Responses are kept anonymous and are used to assess the effectiveness of local programs, identify specific health needs in the community, and create plans to address these needs.
The telephone portion of the survey will be completed this week, the week of May 24 using phone numbers that have been randomly selected from a group of active phone numbers within Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties. The survey will also be sent to a number of email addresses of the region’s residents.
FDRHPO’s goal is to have at least 1,500 adults complete the survey — roughly 500 from each county. Findings are expected to be released early this fall.
