► Center for Rural Health's Stakeholder Survey
The Center for Rural Health will be contacting stakeholders on a semi-annual basis. The stakeholder survey will help us understand how well we are meeting the needs of Rural Arizona, as well as help establish priorities and direction for resources. If you have not yet the current survey, you can access it here: https://uarizona.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bkjldA9BdTSZxyJ
We value the input of a broad group of stakeholders from many different communities (geographic and otherwise) and we are providing this survey as one method to receive comments and gather information. Your responses are completely confidential. We will not ask for any personally identifiable information in this survey.
Thank you in advance for your time ... and for all that you do for your communities!
