We each have our own ideas about what it means to be healthy and what we feel the biggest issues are for ourselves and our community. For years, the Garrett County Health Department and numerous partners have surveyed the community to help identify our greatest concerns. We are better equipped to make informed decisions regarding policies and strategies and are poised to respond together when data is shared transparently across sectors.
Think of this survey as the broadest brushstroke, with the focus groups to follow as the detailed work to drill down into the specifics of each issue. In 2019, over 2,000 people responded to the survey and we conducted ten focus groups. Let’s do it again so we have the most accurate and up-to-date information to better serve our community.
