CALLS FOR 2022 COMMUNITY HEALTH SURVEY BEGIN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1st

Adult residents of Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties encouraged to share thoughts regarding local healthcare

Watertown, NY, May 27, 2022 —– 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 2022 Community Health Survey on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.

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 within one week 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.
