Meeting History

Jul 20, 2017 3:30 PM  Public Safety Committee Regular Meeting

Ms. Bennett provided a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the results from the Healthy Youth survey. The survey has been done every other year over the last 10 years for grades 7 through 12 and compares responses of Tompkins County youth with those of national peers. The survey is a joint effort and the grant funding is due to sunset in September. However, efforts through collaborations with the school districts and community agencies have been underway to build up the funds and continue this survey.

Following the presentation, Ms. Robertson requested it be distributed to all Legislators and Mr. John suggested this presentation be given at the Health and Human Services Committee.
