  1. Yes Darrol, it will. They keep posting on Facebook about their open house for the whole community they serve and hashtag all of the cities in their district except Wood way and MLT. They don’t seem to know their community at all. And what about people who don’t have computers or see an article with the link? How do they respond?

  2. I just completed this survey. Eight questions. Very, very open ended. And after submitting it, I could complete another one without any verification.

    Seems like that feature alone could lead to inaccurate results which would then be used to build up programs that aren’t a true representation of what could actually help the majority of the community, but instead a vocal minority. Also, what constitues good health to one person may not be the same for another.

    Also, if survey participants knew what programs Verdant already provides regarding encouraging good health, that would seem more helpful than a simple, extremely open ended survey.

  3. Since my last comment, they now hashtag Shoreline in there posts on FB. Shoreline isn’t in the hospital district, it’s not even in the same county. It would be great if they had people who worked there who knew the community.
