    MSM PRC COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS ASSESSMENT PROCESS INNPUs V, X, Y and Z IS UNDERWAY!!! 


    The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) Prevention Research Center (PRC) is conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment. The assessment is an 8-page, 30 question survey; the survey asks residents of Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs) V, X, Y, and Z their thoughts about the health concerns of the community. Input from residents will guide the planning of research projects that will benefit the community. 

    If you are a resident in one of these NPU areas, we would like to hear from you. Click here to take the survey. 

    MSM PRC is also collecting in-person feedback from residents from the NPUs. If you would like to schedule an in-person data collection session in your community, please, call Elise Lockamy at 404-752-1916 or reach her by email at elockamy@msm.edu

    We thank you for your participation.
