MENOMONIE – What’s needed for a healthier Dunn County? You!
Dunn County Health Department, in partnership with Mayo Clinic Health System and many local agencies and nonprofit organizations, is requesting your help in identifying priorities in Dunn County by completing our Community Health Needs Assessment survey. A Community Health Plan will be developed, and input from the survey will inform the plan.
Starting Oct. 1, those who live in or attend school in Dunn County are encouraged to complete this brief survey available at http://svy.mk/1OSkx3A.
Survey input will be used in the prioritization process, and results will be shared with the community. All Dunn County residents and students are encouraged to take the survey, which will only be available during October. Printed surveys also will be available from the Dunn County Health Department. Call 715-232-2388 and press zero to request a paper copy. Survey responses are completely anonymous, and no identifying information will be collected.
Survey results will help the partnership agencies identify areas where resources should be directed to improve residents’ health and well-being. Coalition members will continue working together to address these needs, and community input will help identify problems, solutions and where to direct resources.
“This is a great opportunity for community members to have their voices heard regarding their concerns about health in Dunn County,” said Wendy MacDougall, director of Dunn County Health Department. “I would love it if our response rate could top the numbers of responses in our neighboring counties as my impression is that our constituents are very invested in keeping themselves, their families and their neighbors and their environment healthy. This is a great opportunity to help Dunn County be a healthier place to live, work and play.”
