Please Participate in Our Survey!

The Health Care Collaborative hopes to track the health of its residents by conducting a telephone-based health interview survey. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillence System (BRFSS) survey asks residents about a variety of health topics such as chronic diseases and health insurance, and behaviors that impact one’s health like diet, exercise and tobacco use.

The survey is based on the Centers for Disease Control’s BRFSS project which is conducted annually in every state in the U.S. Over 350,000 adults participate in the BRFSS annually, making it the world’s largest health survey.

If You Get the Call – Participate!
The BRFSS is a scientifically conducted survey, and a random sample of people are contacted and asked to participate. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. The people who participate represent all residents – so if you get the call, please participate so that you are represented with your fellow citizens.

“The research shows that personal health behaviors play a major role in premature morbidity and mortality,” said HCC Executive Director Toniann Richard. “Conducting localized health assessments help state agencies target resources to address pervasive health issues close to home. That’s why we are asking if you receive a call requesting your participation, that you don’t hang-up. Your participation will help us improve the health status of our community.”
