AUGUSTA — Healthy Living for ME has opened the response period for its 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment and is encouraging Mainers to participate.
The survey results will allow HL4ME, Maine’s Community Integrated Health Network, to obtain the information needed to best serve and support all adult Mainers. The survey is being conducted in collaboration with the University of New England’s Master of Public Health Program and partners on the Community Health Needs Assessment.
To fill out the survey, Mainers can visit: forms.office.com/r/RgLWj5nThn. A link to the survey also can be found on Healthy Living for Maine’s Facebook page, facebook.com/HLforME, or on Spectrum Generations’ website at spectrumgenerations.org.
If someone would like to respond to the survey, but would prefer to do it by phone, they can call HL4ME at 800-620-6036.
The survey generally takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It will be available online through July 14.
“As Healthy Living for Maine expands programming and services, it is important that we have input from Mainers about where they see a need in the community. We’re asking for your input so we can most effectively plan and implement our programming to fill those health and wellness needs across the state. After you fill out the survey, please share the link with family and friends. Together, we can create a healthier Maine,” said Maija Dyke, contract and business manager of Healthy Living for ME, according to a news release from the health network.
Data collected through the assessment is to provide HL4ME with valuable insight on the type of support Maine adults need, the preferences they have related to that support, and their access to that support.
