Critical Health Needs in South East Inyo - Survey
Inyo County Health and Human Services is performing a survey to better understand the health care needs of our rural and outlying areas. We will use this information to target the investment of our limited resources to make available those services that are most needed. While we acknowledge that there are many services we would like to bring to rural Inyo County and will work to address them all, this survey will help us prioritize our efforts in meeting the most critical health care needs of Inyo Residents in rural South and South East Inyo.
