To help get a snapshot of the health of Lucas County residents of all ages, randomly selected adults and parents of young children will receive surveys on a variety of topics in the mail in late February and early March 2023. The anonymous surveys ask questions about general physical health, mental health, nutrition, exercise, living conditions and other topics as part of a project commissioned every three years by the Healthy Lucas County coalition of community health improvement organizations.

Randomly selected adults and parents of children ages 11 and younger are asked to complete the survey – which will be mailed in a green envelope – and return it in the stamped self-addressed envelope provided, said Erika D. White, Chair of the Healthy Lucas County Executive Committee.

“Responses to these anonymous surveys are compiled and analyzed by group to help our coalition identify the biggest health-related needs and concerns that Lucas County residents have,” said Ms. White, who represents CWA Local 4319 and NAACP 3204 on the Healthy Lucas County Executive Committee. “Healthy Lucas County’s member organizations and partners are working to improve our community’s health, and that starts with regularly taking a look at what our challenges are.”

As part of the project, students ages 12 to 18 were randomly surveyed in participating Lucas County school districts in late 2022.

Results from the anonymous surveys of Lucas County adults, school students and parents of young children will be released in a community health assessment report in December 2023. The assessment’s findings are used extensively for community planning, organizational planning, and grant writing.

Healthy Lucas County uses survey findings to help determine priorities and action steps for a three-year community health improvement plan. The coalition has performed a community health assessment since 1999.
