Georgetown volunteers sought for community health assessment project

July 1, 2018 by  

A call has been put out to Georgetown residents to lend a hand with a project that will collect health related information from people all over the Williamson County and Cities Health District.

This initiative, which will see the members of the public who agree to help go door-to-door to complete the task, will provide the basis for the 2019 Community Health Assessment. The planners noted that it can provide the volunteers with experience in data collection and community surveying while playing an important role in the long term health of the area.

Those who register for the event will receive training before they head out. Water, along with snacks and a lunch, will be provided too. It was explained that should enough people register for the occasion, it may not be necessary to utilize all of the volunteers. The event is scheduled to begin at 9:00 am, and the group will gather at 355 Texas Avenue in Round Rock. It is free to participate.

A project like this can provide helpful health related data for community planners and other officials. Local stationery printers will be able to work with the organizers of this type of initiative to provide them with custom designed forms and other materials to help ensure that their efforts are a success.

This opportunity for the public to lend a hand in their community will be taking place on September 14. More details are available on the Healthy Williamson County website.
