Window opens on county wide health survey today


Johnson County Public Health is asking the Johnson County community to participate in an online health survey to inform the Community Health Improvement Plan.

The survey goes live today and is open until Friday, October 21st.

In a release from the County, Johnson County Public Health Systems Analyst Jamie Gade said that the  Community Health Assessment is part of a larger community health assessment strategy called HealthyJoCo. JCPH staff and student interns will be conducting other surveys at community locations across the county as well.

In addition to the online option, interested participants can take the survey at the Center for Worker Justice on 1st Avenue in Iowa City; CommUnity Food Pantry at Pepperwood Plaza in Iowa City; the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic on Towncrest Drive, and the North Liberty Library on Cherry Street.

The HealthyJoCo assessment efforts will ultimately identify health priorities in Johnson County by spring of 2023. The health department urges residents to take the time to answer the 20-minute survey as well as learn more about the community health assessment process.
