[ARCHIVED] Community Health Survey

Norfolk Public Health Department seeks residents' input on health

Community Health Survey Seeks to Gather Residents’ Input on Health

NORFOLK, VA – The Norfolk Public Health Department (NPHD), with community partners, is distributing a Community Health Survey across Norfolk. It is open until January 21, 2020 and available at this link.  

The survey is part of an initiative to continue to engage residents and community partners in a community health planning process.

“This is a great way for Norfolk residents and stakeholders to let us know what is important to them when it comes to health and quality of life in our community,” said Dr. Demetria Lindsay, Health Director for the NPHD.

The survey addresses topics such as quality of life, health care, children, elderly, economic opportunity, safety, social support, stress, health issues, and risky behaviors. The information gathered from the survey is an integral part of the health planning process. For the last two years, the health department has been working with partners to address community violence, chronic disease prevention and sexual health as a result of community feedback received through a similar survey three years ago.

This is an opportunity to check in and continue to understand the needs of the community related to these issues and other priorities. As the health planning process moves forward there will be more ways to get involved.
