Community health survey needs volunteers for distribution

The “Perceptions of Community Health” survey is currently underway and help is needed. Megan Murphy, coordinator of MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) of the Southern Kenai Peninsula, said “on the ground” volunteers are needed to broadly distribute the survey and then pick up the surveys Dec. 17 and 18. 

“We want to make sure that this survey reflects many layers of our Southern Kenai Peninsula communities, so more hands, feet and support (are) needed for wide distribution,” said Murphy.

Anyone interested in contributing to the MAPP data subgroup, please contact Murphy. The group helps guide the way in which qualitative and quantitative community health data is collected, compiled, organized and displayed online. That information is used to support and inform MAPP’s health issue prioritization process that will take place in the spring.
