With primary elections in Rochester scheduled for Tuesday, September 12, 2017, the Healthi Kids coalition partnered with parents, residents, and alumni of the Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) to develop surveys to understand each candidate’s position on issues related to children’s health and wellbeing.
Each of the three surveys included two sections: open-ended questions on a variety of topics related to children’s health and a prioritized ranking of solutions that are important to the parents who created the survey. Selected findings of each survey are below, focused on questions that were consistent across the surveys, under the topics of: supporting kids’ behavioral health; and supporting kids’ physical health.
