Better Valley Health Survey for 521 Members
A Health Survey for SEIU members in the San Joaquin Valley (Fresno County, Tulare County, Kings County, City of Hanford, Kings Superior Courts, Fresno Superior Courts, First Student Chapter, Student Transportation of America, City of Wasco)
The San Joaquin Valley is a challenging environment for health and healthcare. As union members, we are at the forefront of working to improve quality-of-life standards for our communities, but as workers we face our own personal health-related issues. This brief survey is designed as the first step to help assess how workers feel about their health/health care coverage and identify wellness programs that could promote better health outcomes.
Take the survey now!
