Introduction District Health Department 10 services for 10 counties in the mid-Michigan area, including; Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Missaukee, Oceana, Newaygo, Wexford. There are 187 Employees at District Health Department 10 and they are distributed around the different counties that are serviced for DHD#10. Our contact person for this project is Melanie Perry, CHES is s Health Education Specialist at District Health Department #10 in the Manistee County Office. Melanie has been working with us to help implement a campaign that will increase the amount of services offered by the DHD#10. Our goal for this project is to “promote the diverse population that uses DHD#10 services and bring light to the idea that it is not only the low income/uninsured population that chooses to receive services from DHD#10” (Perry).

We have decided to prepare a survey for customers that use DHD#10 now to help give us feedback on what services are being used and why. This will help us to get to know the customers better and see what their stories here in the DHD#10 area. Our program name is going to be the People of DHD#10.
