Frederick County asks residents to complete survey about community health issues

·1 min read

Jul. 21—Frederick County is conducting an online survey to understand residents' concerns and experiences with health issues in the community — information that the Frederick County Health Care Coalition, Frederick Health Hospital and the county health department will use to identify health priorities and focus public health planning efforts for the next several years

The county is asking all Frederick County residents to take the 10-minute, anonymous survey, which will be open until Aug. 11. It is available at

"We need to hear your stories in order to develop and execute strategies that will deliver targeted justice to address health disparities," Malcolm Furgol, executive director of the Frederick County Health Care Coalition, said in a Wednesday news release. "Because health is not one-size-fits-all, the community health survey is critical to understanding the specific needs and experiences of Frederick County residents."

The survey is part of the county's community health needs assessment process, which provides data on the health of Frederick County residents and the resources available to tackle health issues.
