Transportation & Health Survey

Go Glendale, in collaboration with Southern California Associations of Governments (SCAG) and Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC), is pleased to provide you with a survey that examines the impact of transportation modalities and its effect on our community’s health. A better understanding of our patients’ and community members’ use of public and private transportation can play an important role in providing rural residents access to health care.

The purpose of the survey is to:
• Identify community members’ use of public and/or private transportation
• Assess community members’ use of primary care services and Emergency room/urgent clinics
• Assess the use of such services as Uber and Lyft for medical trips
• Assess how much our community members rely on others for transportation, specifically for health related purposes

This 3-5 minute survey is confidential and you are not required to provide your name or any identifying information. The deadline for the survey responses is Monday, May 23rd, 2016. Thank you for your participation in addressing our community’s needs.

Please see the links below and select your preferred language. Together we can better support our patients’ and community’s needs. We encourage you to complete this survey and forward this email to your peers and colleagues in the following areas: Glendale, Highland Park, Glassell Park and Eagle Rock.

Thank you and your input is very much appreciated and valued!

May 15th is Bike to Work Day!

If you usually drive to work, Bike to Work Day is the perfect day to pump up those bike tires, dust off your helmet, and pedal in to work. Thursday, May 15th is Bike to Work Day, and your efforts will be rewarded at a variety pit stops located all over the LA metro region, including four right here in Glendale, open from 6-9am. Have a mechanic check your bike at the Flower & Sonora pit stop, or swing by Go Glendale’s stop downtown for bagels and coffee! Better yet, hit all four!
