Tama County Health Needs Assessment Survey
Every five years in Iowa, local boards of health lead a community-wide discussion about their community's health needs and decide what can be done about them.

The following survey questions are based on six factors important for the health and well-being of everyone in your community. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey and help the board determine what is needed in your county and to set an order for action by indicating the level of importance of these service needs.

Please complete the survey only once.
