Share Your Health Story Residents’ survey answers will help improve the region’s health

Health departments are required to complete a community assessment and develop a Community Health Improvement Plan every 3 years. Your personal health story can help improve lives. The Seneca County Health Department is looking for residents to share their health experiences. Please complete a survey for your county of residence. To better understand the health issues in Seneca County, they need to hear from you!. If you have any questions about the Community Health Assessment process or the survey please contact Kerry VanAuken firstname.lastname@example.org
