Maryland wants to hear your opinions on the state’s healthcare infrastructure

30 November 2023- The Maryland Department of Health today announced the launch of the Building a Healthier Maryland community input survey to identify the critical health needs of residents and their communities. The Department will use the survey results to address the most important health priorities in Maryland over the next few years. 

“We want all Marylanders to make their voices heard so please share your thoughts by completing the community survey,” said Maryland Department of Health Secretary Laura Herrera Scott. “We need a wide range of input from residents to help the State address our most pressing health needs.” 

The survey questions focus on finding the most important healthcare issues affecting different communities. The questions also cover healthcare accessibility and inequalities, as well as the demographics of respondents. Knowing how different communities experience health outcomes can help the Department better target care and create equity.

The survey can be taken at bit.ly/HealthierMD23. It is available in English, Spanish, Chinese and Korean. Other languages are available upon request. ​Responses to the survey are voluntary and anonymous. The last day to take the survey is January 4, 2024.

Survey respondents must be at least 18 years old and live in Maryland. The survey takes no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. Respondents can direct any questions about the survey to mdh.bahm@maryland.gov.
