Survey seeks public’s view of health issues
Washington County is asking the public to help identify the top health issues that affect the residents of the county.
An online public opinion survey, open until Aug. 30, asks for comment from anyone who lives or works in Washington County. The confidential survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete and covers health issues such as alcohol and tobacco use, access to medical and dental health services, children’s health and environmental concerns.
The survey is available through a link at www.surveymonkey.com/s/wchealth and also can be accessed from the county’s website at www.co.washington.mn.us. For questions, or to obtain a Spanish language version of the survey, contact the Washington County Department of Public Health and Environment at 651-430-6655.
