People living in Raleigh County may have seen a health survey circulating the Internet. Officials with the health department say this is a survey taken every 5 years. The survey is called the community needs assessment. The Beckley-Raleigh county health department has sent the survey to collect information from those living in Raleigh County. Director of nursing, Candance Hurd says the purpose is to compare the data taken from the survey with some of the other counties throughout the state. The information lets officials with the health department see any concerns within the community and health risks.
“We meet with like a focus group of people in our county and then try to set up programs that might try to address some of those health concerns,” said Hurd
The survey will be open until October 5th. You can take the survey following http://www.beckleyraleighhealthdept.org/
