Healthier Together survey: They want to hear from you, deadline Sept. 21

Over the past couple of years, Healthier Together Pierce and St. Croix Counties has been working to improve the health of our communities in the areas of mental health, alcohol abuse, and obesity through nutrition and physical activity.

Three years ago, many community members took a survey to help shape these priorities through our Community Health Needs Assessment. It is now time to revisit our health priorities and complete another community health survey.

We are interested in hearing from all community members regarding their thoughts on the health of our community and what they feel are priority health issues. Please take our survey by visiting:

If you require a paper copy of the survey please call Pierce County Health Department at 715-273-6755 and request that a paper copy is mailed to you along with a return, stamped envelope. All surveys need to be completed by Sept. 21.

Thank you for providing input and for helping to make our community a healthy place to live!
