Onslow Co. Health Department wants to know what you’re most concerned about

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – In Onslow County, health officials want to know what you’re most concerned about.

A survey on the county health department’s website asks a series of questions that you can submit to the department.

It aims to better understand the health concerns in the local community, which Pamela Brown says is more important to understand than government statistics.

“The unique thing about a community health assessment is it’s actually the community that gives us the input, it’s the public who says well I think this would make my neighborhood healthier, I think this would help my family to be healthier, I think this would help me to be healthier,” said Brown, the Onslow County Preparedness Counselor.

The last time the survey was done in 2012, it was done door to door and reached 205 community members.

But due to this year’s survey being online, the health department needs almost triple that amount to get a better understanding of what is needed for the health of the community.
