The Speak to Your Health!(STYH) Community Surveys are designed by local organizations and university partners to identify, monitor, and understand community health and concerns.

The goals of STYH are to:

  1. Understand residents’ health-related behaviors and perceptions;
  2. Provide information for needs assessments and evaluations of projects;
  3. Identify community assets;
  4. Understand the associations between residents’ health-related behaviors and perceptions, social determinants, and health outcomes;
  5. Provide training opportunities; and
  6. Develop a community health agenda that is widely disseminated and democratic.

The Speak To Your Health! survey model is a community-based participatory approach and was developed by the Genesee County Community Board of the Prevention Research Center of Michigan at the University of Michigan School of Public Health.


An aware, empowered, and health community.


Community partners working together to gather, interpret, and share data about the health and well-being of Genesee County.

Survey Results

Results of the survey are available to all Genesee County residents and can be analyzed by gender, race, age, and across time, and mapped geographically to determine trends by neighborhood, zip code, or county. Results from the survey can be used for health program planning and evaluation, grant proposals, community education, and policy development.

Past results have been used for the Genesee County Health Department Strategic Plan and the Genesee Health Plan millage.

Survey topics include physical and mental health, neighborhood safety, physical activity, nutrition, health care access, cancer, diabetes, sexual health, and smoking.
