November’s Community Health Committee: HIP 2015 Survey Findings
Tuesday, November 10, 2015, noon – 2:00 p.m.
Registration information to follow.
The Health Improvement Plan (HIP) of Washtenaw County recently completed its 2015 countywide health survey. More than 2,900 local residents participated in confidential landline or cell phone interviews from February to July. The HIP survey is a telephone survey of Washtenaw County adults that has been conducted every five years since 1995. It is a local version of the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Survey. The HIP survey data are used to identify health disparities between communities and demographic groups, and to determine priorities for targeted or countywide health improvement efforts. The 2015 HIP survey is funded by Washtenaw County Public Health, St. Joseph Mercy Health System, University of Michigan Health System, Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation, Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research and United Way of Washtenaw County. Join the HIP partnership as we unveil key findings and highlights.
