Corktown Health Center and its community partners invite southeast Michigan residents who identify as part of the LGBTQ community to participate in a new online survey. The purpose of the survey, known as the Corktown Health Center Community Health Needs Assessment, is to learn about health needs, strengths and challenges of the LGBTQ community in Southeast Michigan.
Findings will help the Center understand how to improve existing health services and help create the Center’s new five-year plan.
“The Community Health Needs Assessment survey is one way community voices will be heard, as we work to ensure Corktown Health Center continues to deliver excellent healthcare services,” said Latyona Riddle-Jones, the Center’s medical director. “The Center will follow the survey with community conversations to discuss the results. Through the anonymous survey and community conversations, the center aims to identify new ways to improve health in the southeast Michigan LGBTQ community.”
The anonymous online survey – developed by community members and allies from Corktown Health Center, Wayne State University, and WorldShare LLC – takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Participants must be at least 18 years of age or older. The survey is available now until January 9, 2019. Anyone interested in participating can access the survey online at corktownhealth.org or request a paper copy.
For more information about Corktown Health Center and the Community Health Needs Assessment survey, contact Patrick Yankee, chief development officer, at pyankee@corktownhealth.org or call 313-832-3300, ext. 35.
