Corktown Health Center Launches Community Health Needs Assessment
We are reaching out to you as an important organization in the LGBTQ community in southeast Michigan. As you may know, Corktown Health Center recently became the first medical center focused on LGBTQ health in Michigan. Corktown Health Center in collaboration with Wayne State University is working on another first, conducting the first community health needs assessment or survey focused on the LGBTQ community in southeast Michigan. This survey will help us gain information about the health needs, strengths and challenges of the LGBTQ community in Southeast Michigan. The understanding we gain will help in creating a five-year plan for Corktown Health Center.
We need your help in promoting this survey, by linking the survey to your website, social media, emailing members with a link and by word of mouth.
