If you live in Martinsville or Henry County, we want to hear from you!

MARTINSVILLE, Va.- The West Piedmont Health District (WPHD) and its partners are looking for vital feedback from residents. Through a brief online survey, area residents will be asked to share their input on quality-of-life issues. The public’s comments will serve to guide important decisions made within three years. It is important to know where residents feel available funding should be invested, as well as the issues needing the most focus. The survey can be accessed via social media at WPHD Facebook, on the West Piedmont Health District website, and through this link: Community Equity Survey.

“We want to give everyone the opportunity to have a voice by sharing their opinions about the priorities needing the most attention over the next few years,” said Project Leader Pamela Chitwood, Population Health Community Coordinator for the West Piedmont Health District. The survey will be available in English and Spanish. For census purposes, respondents will be asked to provide a street address. This will not be used for any type of identification as this information will remain confidential.

“We are striving to get an overwhelming response to this survey as it will serve as a guide to indicate what is most important to our residents,” Chitwood said. “We are hoping the community will help us spread the word about this opportunity,” she added.

Once all survey results are collected and analyzed, the results are expected to be shared during the spring of 2023. For information about the Henry County Equity Collaborative or the survey, please contact: Pamela Chitwood at pamela.chitwood@vdh.virginia.gov or (540) 484-0292 Ext. 223.
