Tell Us About Your Health: Your Opinion Matters!

What makes a community healthy? This important question is what JCDHE wants to answer. Every three years, JCDHE and their community partners conduct a community health assessment to understand the needs of the county's residents. In October 2015, JCDHE and the nonprofit hospitals in Johnson County are partnering to complete the next community health assessment.

How can you help? Participate in our assessment by answering the survey questions and give us your opinion! Volunteers will conduct 616 in-person, houshold interviews of residents around Johnson County. You'll know they are JCDHE volunteers becasue they come in pairs, wear blue t-shirts, and display name tags that indicate they are part of the community health assessment team.

The household addresses have been randomly pre-selected to make sure our survey reaches a variety of neighborhoods and populations. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes. The information we collect will not include your name or address.

If volunteers knock on your door, open it and take our survey! Your opinion really matters and can help bring positive changes to our county.

Volunteers may be in your neighborrhood on the following dates:

  • October 1st, 2nd and 3rd
  • October 8th, 9th and 10th
  • October 15th, 16th and 17th
  • October 22nd, 23rd and 24th

Thank you for your help!
