YouTube Series: 2017 Community Health Opinion Survey Findings

Working with the North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH), situated in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, the Partnership conducted a community health opinion survey in 2017 to gather residents’ opinions on pressing health needs in the community. Over the course of six days, 44 interviewers in Edgecombe and Nash counties knocked on over 1,000 doors and interviewed 324 community members.  The survey provided the Twin Counties with reliable local-level data which represents the counties as a whole. You can learn more about how the survey was conducted and the results by watching the video series below.
