WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County Health Department has announced the launch of its community health assessment survey.

The survey, conducted every three years, is designed to assess the health and well-being of those who live, work, or go to school in Chester County. The information collected will help identify community strengths, prioritize health needs, and guide the development of a community health improvement plan. Chester County residents are being encouraged to participate in the survey to help improve the health of their community.

As the Director of the Chester County Health Department, Jeanne Franklin recognizes the importance of community input in regard to the department’s initiatives. She explains that the community health assessment is more than just a requirement, it’s an opportunity for residents to have a say in what matters to them.

The survey results will be used to help create programs and services that focus on the most important issues for the people of Chester County. This way, the health department can ensure that its resources are best being used to improve the overall health and well-being of the community.

The community health and wellness survey was developed with input from County Health Department representatives including nurses, health educators, grant administrators, emergency preparedness planners and environmental specialists.

The survey takes a few minutes to complete and asks questions about demographics, health behaviors and issues that impact the overall health of Chester County communities. Relevant topics, such as climate change and COVID-19 were added to this year’s survey. Everyone 15 years and older who lives, works, or goes to school in Chester County is encouraged to complete the survey between now and November 6, 2022.
