Cancer Center survey to reach 10,000 households


The UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center has launched an important new survey to be mailed to 10,000 households in 19 counties in Northern California. 

The Community Needs Assessment aims to characterize a representative sample of adults in the region served by the Cancer Center so that services can be designed to respond directly to the needs of different communities. 

The survey, which will be mailed on July 8, contains 47 multiple-choice questions and one question that will allow the respondent to add more information. The survey asks questions about access to cancer screenings such as mammograms, vaccinations obtained, social media use, tobacco use and exercise history, access to health care and other demographic information. 

The assessment was developed through a contract with the national survey firm, Westat. The Cancer Center hopes to receive at least 1,000 completed surveys by the end of July.
