Annual Survey
Each year, the NCLHD Accreditation program administers a survey to get your feedback into the program. The survey identifies areas of quality improvement in the NCLHD Accreditation Program. We would like to hear from AACs, health directors and other Accreditation team members from every health department in the state. The survey will be administered between April 3- May 3, 2019. All ACCs and health directors will be emailed the survey link and can share it within their health departments. We look forward to receiving your feedback.
