Public Health and Wellness encouraging residents to complete community health survey

May 20, 2024

The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness (LMPHW) has launched an in-depth community health improvement initiative to pinpoint the most pressing health priorities facing Louisville residents, as well as develop strategies and actions to address them. As part of the initiative, community members are being asked to fill out the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) survey to help identify needs and develop plans for programs, services, and solutions to help people live their best lives. 

“We need each other to build a healthier city. By bringing residents, government agencies, civic and nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and private businesses together we can achieve that,” said Connie Mendel, Louisville’s interim chief health strategist. “We welcome all voices to be heard and to provide feedback through this survey. Your experiences, knowledge and opinions are essential in making positive changes and long-lasting impacts that will help us improve the health of all populations in Louisville Metro.” 

“Health problems and inequities are complex challenges, but we are in the business of being problem solvers,” said Dr. Inder Singal, interim medical director at LMPHW. “By joining forces and working together we can collectively improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in our city.” 

Every five years, LMPHW conducts a community health assessment to adopt a long-term strategy to meet the city’s health needs. 

You can help by filling out the survey which can be found here or on our Community Health Improvement Initiative page on The survey is available in other languages, and your answers are confidential. The deadline to fill out the survey is May 31, 2024.
