What is a Health Assessment?
A health assessment is a short survey that asks about your health and life. It helps us find programs and services that can support you in feeling your best. We will share information and ideas back with you after you complete your survey.
Your health assessment information is kept confidential.
How do health assessments work?
A health assessment usually includes questions on these topics:
- Age, gender, and race.
- Lifestyle. Exercise, diet, and if you use tobacco or alcohol are all part of your lifestyle.
- Emotional health. Conditions like depression and anxiety can affect your emotional health, as can life events and other stressors.
- Physical health. This includes weight, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, pregnancy, and other issues.
- Current and previous health conditions.
- Resource and support needs. This includes food, housing, transportation, and employment support.
