Nevada County Public Health Department Community Health Assessment

Submitted by: Nevada County Public Health

Your voice is needed!
Nevada County Public Health Department is leading a collaborative process to develop a comprehensive health assessment of the community, its health challenges and its resources. The intent is to have a deeper understanding of what issues residents feel are important, how quality of life is perceived in
our communities, and what community assets we have that can be used to improve community health.

We are asking community members to complete an online survey. The questions are about quality of life, health care, children, seniors, economic opportunity, safety, social support, community health, stress, and risk behaviors in the community. Some basic demographic information is collected to allow us to learn what matters to the different individuals and communities completing the survey. It is important to us that youth and adults of all ages residing in Nevada County complete the survey – we want to hear from everyone!

The survey is available in English at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NCPHDCommunityHealthSurvey or in Spanish at

At the end of the survey, we offer an option to be entered into a drawing for your choice of one of three
$25 gift certificate to Safeway
