GCPH launches public health survey

Every five years in Iowa, local public health departments lead a community-wide discussion about their community’s health needs and decide what can be done about them. Grundy County Public Health (GCPH) is currently completing their Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and is seeking input from anyone who lives, works, or serves Grundy County in some capacity. GCPH has launched an online survey that asks questions based on six factors important for the health and well-being of everyone in the community. The topics include promoting healthy living, preventing injuries, preventing epidemics, protecting against environmental hazards, public health emergencies and health infrastructure. The survey is 14 questions long and takes between 5-10 minutes to complete on average. Online versions of the survey can be found on the county website, www.grundycountyiowa.gov, as well as on GCPH social media pages. Paper copies of the survey will be available at public health office in Grundy Center Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The public health office is located at 706 H Ave, Suite 2, Grundy Center. Those with questions or needing accommodations in accessing the survey are asked to call 319-824-6312. The survey will be available until July 25, 2021.
