The Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie County Seeks Input for The 2020 Community Wellbeing Survey

By Arlease Hall

February 11, 2020

The Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie announces the launch of a wellbeing survey, as part of a larger Community Health Assessment (CHA) conducted every 3-5 years to identify strategies to improve community health.

“In our effort to provide direction to organizations trying to make a difference in health outcomes,we are seeking feedback from residents aged 18 and over on their perceptions of health and wellbeing in our community,” said Clint Sperber, Administrator and County Health Officer for the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie.

Survey responses are confidential and will be used to develop a community health improvement plan by the end of the year with local organizations addressing issues residents are most concerned about. “Through collaborative efforts with our Healthy St. Lucie partners, we can continue building a culture of health where all residents have the best opportunity for health and wellbeing,” said Jennifer Harris, Director of Community Health Promotion for the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie.

The survey for St. Lucie County residents is available in English at https://bit.ly/2uzelgdor in Spanish at https://bit.ly/31Gst3k and is open through February 29, 2020. A link to the survey is also available on www.healthystlucie.org and http://stlucie.floridahealth.gov/. The City of Port St. Lucie, City of Fort Pierce, and St. Lucie County are joining us to promote the survey to residents through their various social media platforms: Nextdoor, Facebook and Twitter.

About the Community Health Assessment (CHA)
The CHA includes four assessments to aid community partners and leaders in identifying priority health issues. These four assessments – Community Themes and Strengths Assessment, Local Public Health Assessment, Community Health Status Assessment, and Forces of Change Assessment – are part of the community health improvement process used to improve the local public health system and to guide our health planning process.
