The community is at the heart of the Aliso Canyon Disaster Health Research Study and it is critical that the Health Study reflect the community's questions, concerns and priorities. To inform the Health Study, just last month, Public Health sponsored a health opinion survey of 400 residents who live in the North San Fernando Valley. This survey covered the largest geographical area of community members to date, up to 10 miles from the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
In addition to the telephone and online survey conducted by Probolsky, an online Community Opinion Survey is available for residents to complete between now and the end of November. Your opinions are important and your responses are confidential. Visit the ACDHRS web page for a direct link to the Community Opinion Survey. Results will provide insight into the community's priority research topics for the Health Study. We welcome any additional feedback, concerns, or ideas that you would like to share, please consider submitting to our Community Feedback Log.
'All of this information continues to underscore the importance of expediting the launch of this $25 million Health Study. We are focused on supporting the independent and agency science experts on the Scientific Oversight Committee as they set the priorities for this important study,' said Dr. Paul Simon, Chief Science Officer for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
