Margaret Mary is once again sponsoring a phone survey to identify community health needs in Ripley and Franklin counties. Over the next few weeks, the firm, Professional Research Consultants, Inc., will be calling area residents to ask questions about their health habits and lifestyles. The results will be combined into a community report and used to help develop strategies to address the identified needs. Survey participants will be randomly selected and all responses will be kept confidential.
“We encourage everyone to participate if they’re called,” said Geralyn Litzinger, Margaret Mary’s Community Health Director. “This survey is used to help us better understand our community and any unmet healthcare needs. What we learn from the results truly impacts what we do for community benefit moving forward. Margaret Mary has used prior report findings to provide better healthcare services in the area including improved access to care, food and nutrition services and support for addictions and substance abuse.”
