REVERE, MA—March 13, 2012-- The City of Revere, Mass General Hospital and an expanded Revere CARES Steering Group have been working with Revere residents to conduct a community-wide assessment for the city. Part of the process is to review data and talk with people to determine the most important health issues effecting community members before a plan to improve the quality of life for residents is developed.  The assessment takes into consideration the economic and social conditions under which people live which determine health.

“We have not received responses from as many Revere residents as we need, and we only have three more weeks to collect data,” said Leslie Aldrich, Associate director of MGH’s Center for Community Health Improvement. Aldrich asks all resident who have not completed the survey to fill out the Quality of Life Survey in English, Spanish or Portuguese on the Revere CARES website by following the link: http://reverecares.org/ and clicking on “Revere Quality of Life Survey” in the middle of the homepage.

Paper copies of the survey are available at Revere CARES office located at 300 Ocean Ave. in Revere. The survey, either online or on paper, takes 10 minutes to complete, and your answers will help make the Revere Community Health Assessment reflect the diverse needs of this community.
