OWOSSO — This week, Memorial Healthcare, in collaboration with the Shiawassee County Health Department and the Shiawassee Community Health Needs Assessment Team, will begin its survey of Shiawassee County residents as part of a community health assessment process.

Over the next two months, more than 1,200 Shiawassee County residents will be randomly selected to participate in the health survey. Residents of Shiawassee County who are randomly selected are urged to complete and return the survey.

The anonymous survey asks participants to answer questions about general health, risk and protective health factors, access to health care and more. Answers will create a snapshot of the health of Shiawassee County residents.

The results will guide many public and private agencies in their program planning over the next several years by identifying key health problems. The final community health assessment report will be published in the fall, at which time the results will be used to prioritize needs and create a community health improvement plan.

If you receive a survey and have any questions or concerns, contact Vicki McKay, at (989) 729-4514 or via email at vmckay@memorialhealthcare.org.
