In late August, thousands of Northland households will receive the 2020 Bridge to Health Survey.
The survey has been conducted every five years since 1995, and seeks to answer the all-important
question “How Healthy is the Northland?” The comprehensive survey includes questions related to
physical and mental health, nutrition, exercise, tobacco and alcohol use, dental care, insurance
coverage, access to care, access to internet, social connection and belonging, and COVID-19
impact. All survey responses are confidential.
Area hospitals, clinics, public health, community organizations and others draw heavily on the
information collected through the Bridge to Health survey to understand local health needs and
develop programs, increase access to services, and establish innovative solutions with partners to
improve the health of everyone in the community.
Over 50 health and community organizations in the region are working together to conduct the
survey. We hope that if you get the survey, you will complete it.
