Community Health Assessment Survey Coming to Weber County Homes to Address Local Needs
(Ogden, UT) – In the coming weeks, Weber County residents will receive a 41-question Community Assessment Survey from the Weber-Morgan Health Department asking residents about their knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to social, financial and mental health impacts on people in their households.
Please don’t toss it. The assessment will help identify gaps in local services and focus activities across agencies throughout the county. It is an opportunity for residents to have a say on how to improve their health, safety and access to resources.
“It’s every bit as important as the US Census only with an entirely local focus,” says Brian Bennion, executive director of the Weber-Morgan Health Department. “In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be vital to learn how we can best use our limited resources to serve our community.”
The survey will start arriving in mailboxes soon. Results will be made known later this year. Residents can complete the survey online, by telephone, or filling out the form and sending it back in a prepaid-return envelope. Households receiving the survey have been randomly selected using mapping software from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and Weber County Geographic Information Systems to divide the county into 30 quadrants for the representative sample. The first 400 respondents will receive a $10 gift card to local businesses and all those who respond will be entered to win a $100 gift card.
