Comagine Health and Oregon Wellness Network Launch Health Concerns Survey to Advance Health Equity

PORTLAND, OR / ACCESSWIRE / June 21, 2024 / Comagine Health and the Oregon Wellness Network (OWN) are excited to announce the launch of the Advancing Health Equity to Address Diabetes (AHEAD) Community Health Concerns Survey. This initiative is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and aims to understand health concerns and perceptions of diabetes, focusing on its impact on the quality of life for Oregon residents.

“We recognize that the number of people living with diabetes is on the rise, and navigating life with this chronic condition can be particularly challenging,” said Evan Saulino, Family Physician, Comagine Health Clinical Director. “Local residents who complete this survey will help us identify and address key issues, ultimately improving access to diabetes care for communities across Oregon.”

The survey, which is open June 15 through July 31, 2024, will help partnering organizations:

  • Capture the priority health concerns within the community
  • Understand the perceptions of Oregonians surrounding diabetes and its impact on their lives and the lives of their loved ones
  • Use survey results to inform program recruitment and delivery, and support funding applications
  • Reach as many community members as possible in the targeted counties

Community members who complete the survey will be entered to win $25 gift cards.

Through partnerships across Oregon, Comagine Health and OWN are working to enhance access to the National Diabetes Prevention Program and Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support services across Oregon. The survey will be an important tool to help expand the reach of those programs.
