Take the 2011 Community Health Assessment!

Taking the 2011 Community Health Assessment is an easy way for our readers to help Norwood gain public health grants and other resources for the community. We hope everyone will participate. Pamela Walker-Bauer (see today’s blog below about her new position with the Clinton County Health Dept.) just sent us the following “how-to.”

The NHD has begun the 2011 Community Health Assessment. We will have individuals at Norwood Day at Coney Island today to ask for voluntary participation in a brief survey about the health of our community. In exchange for your participation, we will have a small token of appreciation.

The last NHD Community Health Assessment was in 2005. In order to qualify for many grants and bring resources to the Norwood community, we need to have a more current assessment.

We need help from the community on this project to make it a success. If you can't visit our surveyors at Coney Island, please visit them at the Norwood Police Night Out festivities on August 2 (see blog directly below). You may also take our survey on-line at:

Your help is greatly appreciated.
