Whitmore Lake Health Equity Leadership Team Survey

Earlier this year, you received an update from the Health Equity Leadership Team of Whitmore Lake/Northfield Township following our community conversation last November. Since that time, the Team has been hard at work implementing new projects and identifying opportunities to improve health in the community.
Many of you know that improving access to health care in Whitmore Lake is a top priority and one of the most frequently mentioned issues at previous community conversations. The Team has developed a short survey to better understand the specific types of services and scheduling that would work best for residents. This information will help us have more informed conversations with organizations and providers who may be interested in bringing services to Whitmore Lake.  
If you live in Whitmore Lake/Northfield Township or know community members who do, we ask that you please share your input or share the survey with those you know.
No personally identifiable information is being collected and the Health Equity Leadership Team will only share the survey results in summary form.
The survey can be accessed at this link:
Thank you for your support and please feel free to reach out to the Team ( with any questions.
We look forward to sharing a summary of findings in the coming weeks.
