The purpose of the Health Indicators Project is to gather data to demonstrate the effectiveness of NORC programs. Many of you have filled out the survey before, but this is a new round of data collecting. Unlike in the past, you do not have to meet with an MRHS staff person to take the survey. You can fill it out on your own at MRHS or at home.
Once the surveys are completed by the due date of June 30, they will be analyzed so that MRHS will be able to determine a health issue of concern, such as falls, diabetes, or heart disease, for additional attention. If your survey demonstrates that you are vulnerable to the health issue of concern, you can voluntarily participate in an evidence-based program that addresses the issue.
But for now we just want to concentrate on having the surveys completed. So we will be hosting a “Come Fill Out A Survey” day on Monday, March 16, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You can come to MRHS, enjoy some refreshments, and fill out a survey. MRHS staff people will be available if you need help. At the end of the day everyone who has completed a survey will be entered into a raffle for a $25 Gift Certificate to Bettalona’s Restaurant. It should be fun and you’ll be doing your part to help out the MRHS Community!
