Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the Denver Indian Community Assessment Survey. The results will help Denver Indian Health and Family Services (DIHFS) improve the services provided by the Spirit Within program to support traditional healthy eating and physical activity. It will also help DIHFS build a general understanding of health and culture among Natives in the Denver area.

While some of the questions might seem personal, we are not interested in using the information to identify you individually. We are only interested in what Denver Indian community members generally  think about and do when it comes to healthy eating, physical activity, and overall health and wellbeing. Your name or identifying information is not requested, and the data collected with this survey will be kept anonymous. Only staff with JSI, an Evaluation Consultant working with the DIHFS team, will have access to the individual responses. All the data collected will be summarized and reported without any information that will identify you to the DIHFS project team and to the funder Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary, and by filling out the survey you give us permission to use the data you provide.

If you complete the survey, you can enter your name and phone number for a drawing to win one of the following gifts: Instapot, FitBit, grocery store giftcard, or one of three $50 Visa giftcards! At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to provide your contact information, which will be kept confidential and used only for purposes of notifying you if your name is drawn as a winner. This survey is intended for individuals who are 18 years of age or older. By continuing with the survey you’re indicating that you are at least 18 years of age.

The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. If you need to return to a previous page that you have already completed, please use the Prev button at the bottom of each page (rather than the Internet back arrow at the top of the screen). You can go back in and edit your responses at any time after submitting the survey by using the same link. 

Please take this survey by December 21st, before it closes!

Thank you very much for your time.
