What are the most pressing health needs in Greater Lowell? You have a say.

In just 15-20 minutes, residents of Greater Lowell can complete an anonymous survey that will impact how vital grant money and public health resources are distributed across the region.

The Community Health Needs Assessment Survey is conducted every 3 years as a partnership between Lowell General, the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Greater Lowell Health Alliance. The assessment relies heavily on information provided by survey responses, focus groups and stakeholder interviews to identify the region’s most pressing health needs.

The responses provide the framework for the region’s public health roadmap – called the Community Health Improvement Plan or CHIP – and guides the activities of the GLHA’s task forces and grant-making. The final report will also serve as a major data source and strategy guide for Lowell General Hospital and dozens of other health agencies, as well as community organizations, non-profits, and advocates across the Greater Lowell region.
