Community members are encouraged to complete health survey

Starting August 13th some residents across Wright County will receive a community health survey by mail. The survey and community health needs assessment work are made possible through a partnership of four local organizations: Buffalo Hospital, part of Allina Health; CentraCare Health – Monticello; Wright County Public Health; and Wright County Community Action.

Public health officials will mail the survey to 8,000 randomly selected homes across Wright County. The information provided by community residents in the survey is critical in helping identify strengths and health issues across the county. All responses will be confidential, and the survey will only take a few minutes to complete. We ask that each household who receives a survey to complete it and mail it back. Participation is voluntary.

Wright County Public Health has been protecting, maintaining, and improving the health of county residents since 1951.
