The health of a community is not just the absence of illness or disease. Rather, the health of a community involves all aspects of life, including economic, recreational, environmental, cultural and spiritual aspects. Quinnipiack Valley Health District, serving Bethany, Hamden, North Haven and Woodbridge, is collecting your opinions about health in the community through a community health assessment (CHA.). Through this process, health issues, community conditions and resources that contribute to health will be identified. This information will be used to improve health in our communities. Your voice is an important! Please consider completing a Community Health Assessment survey. You can find it online, www.qvhd.org, request a copy by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (203 248-6671) or you can call QVHD (203 248-4528) for a mailed copy. It is also located on the Town of Hamden website home page and on the North Haven town home page under “announcements”. The more “voices” we hear from, the better our understanding of the community. Help shape the future of health in your town. Complete a survey now!
