Please take a few moments to take our survey.  The purpose of this survey is to get your feedback about community health needs in Decatur County.  The more information we receive from the people we serve, the better we can develop action plans to meet those needs.  The Community Health Advisory Committee will use results of this survey to evaluate the most pressing health needs of our community.
