(Des Moines, IA) The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is asking for public input for Healthy Iowans 2022-2026: A State Health Assessment of Iowa. Through an online survey, Iowans will be able to select up to three areas that they believe are most important to the health and well-being of Iowans and our communities.

As we transition to pandemic recovery, this process will highlight both opportunities for growth and the challenges we face as we assess public health in Iowa. From 2022-2026, IDPH will work to address key priorities identified in the survey to advance the health of Iowans so they can live longer, healthier, more productive lives and enjoy the rich quality of life Iowa has to offer.

To fully understand the diversity of health needs and priorities in the state, IDPH encourages all Iowans to participate in the survey. The Iowa Health Assessment survey is available here.

The survey will be open until June 30, 2021.
