In addition to CHNA survey data, SCHD is hosting focus groups to receive direct feedback from communities in Shelby County. A focus group is a group interview involving a small number of demographically similar people or participants who have common traits/experiences. Their answers and reactions to specific questions and conversations are noted and studied. Focus groups will be hosted until September 2023. Focus groups are a way to receive personal feedback from community members across Shelby County. The department hosts focus groups at local businesses and partners with community organizations to build feedback data over numerous zip codes.
