Community Health Assessment Survey:
Every four years, the State of North Carolina requires local Health Departments to conduct a community-wide health assessment survey. We are asking for your help in this process! This survey will require approximately 15 minutes of your time and will help us identify what people feel are Caswell County’s most pressing community health problems. This survey will begin the process of making Caswell County a healthier county. Click on the following link to take you to the Community Health Assessment Survey.
