Seeking Participants for the 2021 Community Input Survey
In partnership with the Alliance for Health Equity, Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital is conducting a survey to inform our efforts to improve the health of the communities we serve. Residents of Chicago and suburban Cook County of all ages are invited to take our survey.
As a pediatric medical center, we are committed to collecting feedback from youth and parents or caregivers, especially from groups that are typically under-represented in community input surveys, including communities of color, the LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, immigrants and refugees, youth and families experiencing homelessness and housing instability. The survey will be open through October 2021 and results will be shared with communities in early 2022.
What will I be asked about?
We’re interested in learning more about your community – the places where you live, work and play. The survey will take about 5 minutes to complete, and you’ll be asked about what’s most important to you about your community’s health, what you think is going well, what needs to be improved and how COVID has impacted you and your family. All the information you share will be anonymous.
What happens after I take the survey?
Your input will help Lurie Children’s determine the types of projects it works on to improve community health. The information we collect will be compiled and made available to the public in 2022 on the Alliance for Health Equity’s website.
How can I get the word out?
We need your help! To help spread the word about the Community Input Survey and encourage participation, we have created a toolkit that includes marketing materials for you to share with your communities and networks. The toolkit includes:
- Suggested copy for newsletters, social media and other outreach
- Survey flyer
- Social media graphics
