We hope you will be the winner, but if not there are several other prizes to win! Each prize will be randomly drawn at the close of the survey in just a few weeks! You may be wondering why this survey has so many great prizes attached? It’s the survey that provides the foundation for health-related work in Garrett County. This 2-3 minute survey asks YOU what issues matter most to YOU. Our processes are led by our local community providing direct feedback to steer the course for the next few years. This survey is the foundation that helps determine how our county prioritizes the issues we need to address to make Garrett County a better place to live. The three-five issues chosen the most are then talked about in-depth in small groups of community members to understand their different aspects. A report is then published and Garrett Regional Medical Center, Mountain Laurel Medical Center, and the Garrett County Health Department utilizes the report and all the data contained for strategic planning, and grant writing.
The Office of Population Health, Innovation, & Informatics champions the effort and works with various agencies, businesses, and non-profits to reach as many people as possible in Garrett County!
