Macomb County Health Department and community partners launch county-wide health survey
Healthy Macomb, a partnership between the Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) and over 20 organizations and agencies in Macomb County, has launched a county-wide survey to collect information on the needs and priorities of community members. The Macomb County Community Health Survey will help MCHD and its community partners identify and address the most important health concerns in the county.
Everyone who lives, works, and plays in Macomb County is encouraged to complete the survey at https://macombgov.org/cha-survey . The survey takes 5–10 minutes to complete and is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic. By taking the survey, community members throughout Macomb County have the opportunity to tell county organizations how to make Macomb County a healthier place for their families and their communities.
“As a result of the pandemic, we’ve all been through a lot over the past couple years. Although not new, health disparities and the social determinants of health (SDOH) became even more evident during COVID-19,” said Andrew Cox, Director/Health Officer of the Macomb County Health Department. “This survey gives people a chance to share their input on these issues and contribute to a plan that will make Macomb County a healthier place. We want to hear from everyone.”
The Macomb County Community Health Survey is part of the 2022 Community Health Assessment (CHA), a process that aims to understand the greater health and well-being of Macomb County. The first CHA in Macomb County was completed in 2016. Healthy Macomb organizations will continue to gather community member input in the coming months, with the goal of completing the CHA in late 2022.
