FAIRBANKS — Alaskans have one more week to participate in a state health survey that seeks to find out what people think are the top health issues in their communities.

The survey is being jointly conducted by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium. It’s called the Healthy Alaskans 2020 project and is designed to serve as a guide for handling health concerns.

The Alaska survey is part of the national Healthy People 2020 project, which seeks to provide reachable goals to improve the health of all Americans.

“More than 900 people have taken the survey so far,” said Beverly Wooley with ANTHC, in an item provided by the health department. “But we’d like to see more, especially from the rural and smaller communities. What do people feel is important in their communities? We really want to know.”

The survey can be found online at and takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It asks participants to rank the importance of various health topics. The survey is available until Oct. 22.
