Wauwatosa residents may receive phone calls requesting they participate in a community health survey this summer.
The survey is a combined effort among the city's Health Department, area hospitals and the Center for Urban Population Health Research, which collects data every three years to determine changes and trends, Wauwatosa Health Director Nancy Kreuser said.
The results will help local government, healthcare and volunteer organizations make decisions about the services they offer.
Surveys will take less than 20 minutes, and questions will focus on issues such as access to healthcare, tobacco and alcohol use, diet, physical activity, cancer prevention, heart health, injury prevention, immunizations, communicable diseases, mental health and chronic disease.
Responses will be anonymous. JKV Research, an independent research firm that specializes in community surveys, will make the calls.
