Community Surveys Available Now

The Center for Multicultural Health (CMH) is currently assessing the needs of Utah minority community members to inform health promotion efforts over the next three years. This short, written survey will help CMH and partners determine ways to address health access, baby health and obesity problems in minority communities.  The survey is available in English, Spanish, Samoan and Tongan. Surveys must be returned to CMH by February 3, 2011.

The survey is primarily being distributed by community-based organizations to the people they serve.  If you work with minorities and may be able to help CMH distribute the survey, contact Christine Espinel at cespinel@utah.gov or 801-273-4137.

In addition to this informal survey, CMH is assessing community needs through a series of focus groups and through a randomized telephone survey of Pacific Islander Utahns.  To learn more about the randomized survey of Pacific Islanders, see http://utahmulticulturalhealth.blogspot.com/2010/12/opportunity-to-hear-pacific-islander.html
