The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH-Sarasota) is inviting residents to complete its Community Health Well-being Survey.

The survey has been designed to collect data from Sarasota County residents on nutrition, physical activity, access to care, and mental health, a news release explains. The survey is available online at, the release adds. It is open through May 15.

This survey is only for Sarasota County residents who are 18 years of age or older, the release points out. “All survey responses are anonymous and no identifying information is collected,” the release adds. “The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.”

“You have the power to help shape our community’s well-being,” said Chuck Henry, DOH-Sarasota health officer, in the release. “Sharing your health concerns builds awareness and leads to positive health outcomes,” he added

Data gathered from the Community Health Well-being Survey will help DOH-Sarasota staff “better understand the needs of the community and will be used to develop a community health improvement plan, addressing the issues residents are most concerned about,” the release notes.

The Sarasota County Community Health Well-being Survey results will be shared with members of the community on the DOH-Sarasota website, the release says.

The most recent Sarasota County Community Health Well-being Survey was performed in 2019.
