CORTLAND, NY – The Cortland County Health Department and Guthrie Cortland Medical Center are urging county residents to participate in the Community Health Assessment Survey.

The survey results help health care officials determine the appropriate steps to meet the health needs of the community.

The 10-minute survey is anonymous, the Guthrie Clinic said.

“This really is an opportunity for community members to get involved in providing information that they feel is important,” said Nicole Anjeski, director of public health for Cortland County. “The community health assessment describes the health of the community by presenting information about health status, community health needs, resources, and current local health issues that identify target populations who might be or are at increased risk of poor health outcomes.”

The Community Health Assessment Survey is conducted every three years as part of a New York State requirement. The Cortland County Health Department and Guthrie are teaming up to “make sure everyone’s voice is heard.”

The survey is open through April 3 and is available on the Cortland County Health Department’s website or Facebook page. Guthrie will post a link and QR code on his Facebook page, The Guthrie Clinic.

The health department will also visit community events and businesses to increase survey participation. As an added benefit, residents who complete the survey will be redirected to another site for a chance to win prizes donated by local businesses.

People without internet access or those who need help completing the survey should call the Cortland County Health Department at (607) 756-3442, the Guthrie Clinic said.
