BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (WKBT) — The Jackson County Public Health Department and Black River Falls Memorial Hospital are asking Jackson County residents to participate in a survey to determine the county’s health-care needs.

The survey tool, which will be available until the end of May, is part of a health assessment that will provide guidance to organizations that prove resources to county residents, including the health department, Black River Memorial, Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers, Western Dairyland and the Servant Led Community Group, according to a health department news release.

The survey will take 15 to 20 minutes, and information will be kept anonymous.

“We hope to obtain feedback from a large and diverse group of citizens,” said Miranda Greenwold, marketing and community relations director at Black River Memorial.

Tammy Handly, Jackson County health manager and health officer, said, “Survey results will guide us as we work to address any gaps in services or health needs.”

The first 400 participants will receive a $10 Kwik Trip gift card.
