Impact DuPage survey launched

Mon September 8, 2014

Residents will be asked for their input as community leaders work to identify DuPage County community strengths, health concerns, and potentially risky behaviors.  Community member input will also be used to prioritize community resources to create communities that support the overall well-being of residents as "Impact DuPage" work swings into high gear. 
 
The "Impact DuPage" survey is available online at:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/impactdupage (English) and http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/impactdupageespanol (Spanish). In addition, hard copies will be available at public locations throughout DuPage County, including libraries, senior centers, health and human service agencies, and other locations.
 
Surveys will be collected from Monday, Sept. 8, to Friday, Oct. 31. The survey takes less than five minutes to complete. Survey results will be available to the public once the "Impact DuPage" assessment process has been completed in December, 2014.
