Some Agencies Involved With Health Care On Central, South Coasts Conducting Community Survey

STETH.jpg

Thousands of people on the Central and South Coasts will be getting phone calls during the next few weeks asking about health issues, to try to get a read on the public’s concerns about the topic. A coalition of more than a half dozen groups in Santa Barbara County is doing a survey of views on the subject.

The questions include topics like physical activity, depression, smoking, and health insurance status. The responses are confidential, and information will not be connected with names or phone numbers.

Cottage Health, the Lompoc Valley Medical Center, and the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department are among the participating agencies in the Community Health Needs Assessment.

The survey started this week and will run through September.
