Lynn Public Health Division: Community Health Inclusion Index SurveyFill Out Here
In order to get a good picture of our community, and to determine how accessible community resources are for persons with disabilities, the City of Lynn has created this survey using the Community Health Inclusion Index (the CHII), an assessment that is designed to evaluate the physical activity, healthy eating, and wellness resources in a community. The goal is to find out how inclusive our community is right now for persons with disabilities, and to build upon these assets to increase inclusiveness overall. The survey would include the assessment of schools, workplaces, food sources, community organizations, and healthcare sites in the community.

A Message from Public Health Director, Lisa M. Tobin:
Hello and welcome to the Public Health landing page of the City of Lynn’s newly designed website! 
We hope that you found us ok and are able to navigate the City’s entire site to find what you need.
Here in the Public Health Division, we are made up of administrators, public health nurses, epidemiologists
and community health workers from all walks of life with varied lived experiences. Our commitment is to ensure 
a strong quality of life for residents by assessing the social determinants of health for the city as a whole as well
as sub populations. Through these assessments we work toward finding ways to implement
change when we see deficits as well as work towards supporting efforts that are successful.

Please visit our new Community Health Resource Room located in Room 103 at Lynn City Hall where we have
lots of free stuff, literature and resources.  Please look through our page to see more of the work we do and most
importantly, please reach out if you have questions or concerns. You can follow us on Facebook at Lynn Public Health,
email us at [email protected] or text us at 781-718-0684
We’d love to hear from you!
