HOW'S THE HEALTH OF POLK COUNTY CITIZENS? WE'D LIKE TO KNOW.
The Polk County Health Department, in collaboration with Polk's three medical centers, the United Way St. Croix Valley, and UW-Extension is conducting a community survey to determine the most important health issues in Polk County. Some of you may have taken this survey in 2015. The information provided will be used to assess if our health is improving or if new health challenges are occurring. Your participation is voluntary and will not affect your health benefits or healthcare in any way. All responses are completely confidential.
At the end of this survey, you have the option of entering your name for a drawing for a $100 fitness tracker, a $25 gas card or a $10 Subway card. Your name will not be linked to your survey. If you have further questions, please call Brian Kaczmarski, Health Director/Officer, Polk County Health Department at 715-485-8500.
Thank you so much for taking time to complete this survey!
