Meriden Health Department to Conduct Community Health Assessment

March 19, 2008

As part of the Meriden Health Department's mission to improve the overall health and wellbeing of Meriden residents, an adult community health needs assessment will be conducted the week of April 7 - 11, 2008.

The Center for Research and Public Policy, under the guidance of the Health Department, will be randomly calling Meriden residents to complete a short survey on a variety of health and wellness topics. Phone calls will be made between 5:00 and 9:00pm, Monday through Friday. All surveys will be anonymous.

Community health assessments provide information about the health and wellness status of community residents. Last done in 1999, the new assessment will aid the Meriden Health Department in setting priorities for future policies, programs, and services.

"Findings from the Meriden community needs assessment will provide important information that can be used to improve the community health of our city. I encourage everyone who receives a phone call to take a few minutes to answer the questions for the benefit of our entire community," says Beth Vumbaco, Director of Health and Human Services.

If you have any questions about the community health assessment, please call the Meriden Health Department's Community Health Education office at 630-4238.
