University of Maryland Set to Survey Health Concerns of Prince George's County Residents

 

The following information was sent to us by the University of Maryland's David Ottalini: 

 

Prince George's County residents may be getting a call from one of their "neighbors" soon -- the University of Maryland School of Public Health. The school will conduct a telephone survey in late January and February to ask Prince George's County residents about their views on health and health-care services in the county.

The public health survey will provide information that will help the county assess its current health-care system and determine how to best meet the health-care needs of its residents. A redesigned county health system may include a new regional medical center and a comprehensive outpatient care network.

"The information we glean from this survey will help shape how health care is delivered to the people of Prince George's County," said County Executive Rushern  L. Baker III. "It is critically important that we get responses from as many people as possible so that the residents of this county receive the type of health-care service they want and deserve."

Residents may receive a call on their land line or cell phone from the 301-405-0000 University of Maryland exchange, and will be asked about their health and well-being, health-care behaviors and experiences, perceptions of health care available in Prince George's County, and attitudes toward county hospitals. Survey participants will also be asked for their opinions about the health-care needs of their family and of the county. Social Science Research Solutions will conduct the survey of a random sample of 1,000 county residents. The survey is completely anonymous.
