Looking for Responses Evanston Health Department Issues Community Survey

During the month of September, the Evanston Health Department is conducting the 2013 Community Health Survey. A random selection of residents will receive surveys in the mail.

Anyone who receives a paper copy should have an adult (18 or older) fill it out and mail it by Sept. 30 in the envelope included in the packet.

The survey is also available on line at It takes 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.

The information collected through the survey identifies health needs throughout Evanston. Based on the information gathered in the previous survey in 2010, the Health Department identified three community priorities: access to affordable health care, physical activity and nutrition, and chronic health conditions.

To address these priorities, the Health Department partnered with the Erie Family Health Center to provide primary care, behavioral care, pediatric care and children’s dentistry.

In addition to this partnership, Health Department programs such as Women Out Walking have helped thousands of Evanston women increase their physical activity and learn about healthy food options.

Finally, the City connects tobacco users to resources to help them quit smoking, which improves health and reduces the costs associated with tobacco-related illnesses.

The input of residents is vital to helping the Evanston Health Department focus resources where they are needed most.  More information is available by contacting the Health Department, 847-448-4311.
