San Juan Basin Public Health has launched an online Community Health Assessment (CHA) and we need your feedback. Performing a CHA is required by the Public Health Act of 2008, and data gathered from this survey will be used to develop our Public Health Improvement Plan (PHIP) for the next five years.

This is a core function of local public health in Colorado, it is therefore very important to us to get input from as many different people in Archuleta and La Plata counties as possible. The survey is available in English and Spanish and should take about 15 minutes to complete. Thank you for participating and sharing with your networks!

Go to http://sjbpublichealth.org/ and click on the banner to choose English or Spanish versions of the survey.
