Health and wellness survey to shape how services delivered

Time is running out for people across the Fraser Health region to have their voices heard, as the deadline approaches for the My Health My Community survey to capture residents' health statistics.

The online survey closes June 30.

It aims to collect health and well-being information from two to four per cent of the population aged 18 and up.

When it comes to planning a community's health and social services, a onesize-fits-all approach does not always work. Within cities, neighbourhoods are unique, varying by factors like commuting options, opportunities for physical activity, ease of accessing grocery stores and the residents' social connectedness, just to name a few.

Fraser Health needs more people to complete the survey in order to understand these neighbourhood differences and work with local governments and organizations to respond accordingly.

"This is your chance to have a voice in shaping the future of the community where you live, work and play," said Dr. Victoria Lee, executive medical director, population and public health for Fraser Health.

"Every survey completed provides us with more insight and a better understanding of the communities we serve. We urge everyone in the Fraser Health region to get involved and make a difference."

The information collected through the survey can be used to shape future community programs and services.

The survey can be completed at www.myhealthymycommunity.org.
