The City’s Dept. of Public Health is looking for your input:
As background, the Virginia Beach Department of Public Health is conducting a community-wide Wellness Survey to find out what health issues are most important to the Virginia Beach community. (An article was in the 5.25.08 Beacon.)
The survey is very important and is a chance for the community to have input on health priorities in the city and to let us know what health concerns are most on residents’ minds. After the results are collected, the Department of Health, along with a community task force, will formulate and create goals, strategies, and an action plan to address residents’ top concerns, such as the cost of health care, substance abuse, or improving healthy behaviors.
In order to get results that accurately reflect the concerns of the Virginia Beach community, it is essential to get as broad of a sample as possible—which is why we need your help!
I would love to work with you all to get the survey out to the Cape Story by the Sea Civic Association. It is available to take online at www.vbhealth2008.com .
