Public Health - Seattle & King County

Best Starts for Kids SurveyWhat are the needs and strengths of King County families? First-ever survey to provide answers.

Do children in our region get the medical checkups that are recommended? Do families in our region receive the child care they need? How many kids are ready to succeed in school?

Until now, we didn't have a good source of information to understand the strengths and needs of local families. With a new community-wide survey starting this month, King County will begin to fill this gap.

The Best Starts for Kids health survey available in multiple languages and sponsored by the voter-approved Best Starts for Kids initiative was developed in consultation with local experts and trusted community-based organizations. Learn more from the Public Health Insider.
