The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) is conducting this survey in order to identify areas of collaboration and gather information on future needs of your facility.
This information will assist us in identifying support strategies that best meet your needs. The information you provide will be used solely for capacity building and will not be shared wih others outside CDPH. This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. We ask that your facility only completes one survey at this time.
Thank you for your partnership and feedback as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and the path ahead.
