This assessment allows community members to tell us what they want to see from health and wellness services in the next three years and is a major data source and strategy guide for dozens of health agencies, community organizations, non-profits, and advocates across the Greater Lowell region.
We hope you will continue to support us in collecting this critical information, in any of the following ways:
1. Take the survey!
Any person who lives in Lowell, Dracut, Chelmsford, Tewksbury, Tyngsborough, Billerica, Westford or Dunstable is eligible to participate, and that very likely includes you!
2. Please distribute the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GLCHNA2022!
You can do this via your list servs within your agency, directly to clients, on your personal or professional social media, accounts, or anywhere else you have an audience. Please feel free to write your own pitch for participation (you are the expert one what will resonate best with the people you serve!) but if it is helpful, we have provided this template text; feel free to copy-paste!
“The Greater Lowell Health Alliance, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Lowell General Hospital, invites you to participate in their 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment Survey! This survey will ask you about yourself, your health needs, and what you think your community should be prioritizing in the next three years in regard to community health, safety, and resources. Your input will be used to help leaders make decisions about funding, implementing programs, and other critical community decisions!"
And even though the survey is completely anonymous, you can opt to be redirected to a secure site to be entered to win one of five $50 gift cards.
Anyone who lives in Lowell, Dracut, Chelmsford, Tewksbury, Tyngsborough, Billerica, Westford or Dunstable can participate at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GLCHNA2022
If you have any questions, please contact: Devon Goldberg, email@example.com
3. Let us know if you’d like to host paper copies! We can arrange for hardcopies of the survey to be dropped off at your site and then pick them up once they are completed; many of our partners believe this is a better way to reach the people they serve, so we are happy to coordinate. We also have the survey available in multiple languages! We also have 7 amazing interns to assist!
This project would not be possible without the continued support from our community partners; we appreciate all you do to support your community, and we hope that the 2022 Greater Lowell Community Health Needs Assessment will be an asset for you, too!
