Good afternoon,

I recieved the following message from Neighborhood Improvement Services today and they wanted you all to be aware that volunteers may be walking around your neighborhood in the upcoming weeks.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email the folks listed below.

The Durham County Department of Public Health (DCDPH) is conducting community surveys in neighborhoods Thurs. – Sat. (this week, 10/6-10/8, and next week, 10/13-10/15). Hours will be 9:30am-6:30pm.

Survey volunteers will wear neon blue t-shirts with the DCDPH logo. They will also have a letter from the County confirming they are a volunteer.

If volunteers visit your residence, please participate. This survey is your change to help DCDPH identify and plan for our community’s future health priorities.

Please help us spread the word- let your friends and neighbors know our volunteers may visit their homes to ask to conduct a survey.

About the survey: Every three years, the DCDPH completes a health assessment for the entire county, which includes an opinion survey. The survey is conducted at randomly selected households throughout the county. The information collected is used to help community members and organizations set health priorities and to help inform programming needs for nonprofits, government agencies, and hospitals in the area.

For more information, please contact Denver Bailey with the DCDPH.

Many thanks,
