The Community Strengths and Themes Assessment (CSTA) survey is available and ready to receive input on how community health, wellness, readiness and resiliency can be improved for Camp Humphreys and Area III, until March 31, 2019 (and extended as needed).
Current Army Regulation (AR 600-63 and AR 40-5) directs installations to assess communities for health risk factors and needs. A comprehensive CSTA is supported by the Centers for Disease Control's Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process.
"The survey is an opportunity for service members to provide feedback on health-related topics in regards to installation programs, services and care," said Ms. Jocelynn LaShier, the Eighth Army Ready and Resilient Program specialist for Area III. "It poses questions on individual and community matters ranging from physical, spiritual, psychological, social, and family readiness and resiliency."
This assessment will help leadership gain a better understanding of community perceptions about health, safety, satisfaction, and quality of life within the environment of U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys and Area III.
After the information and data has been collected by the Army Public Health Center, the survey will primarily be used for analysis and the identification of priorities for the Area III Senior and Garrison Commanders' Ready and Resilient Council (CR2C) Working Groups for strategic and action planning.
The CSTA is completely voluntary and there is no penalty or punishment if individuals do not participate, nor can anyone be penalized or rewarded for their responses. The only incentive to complete the survey is to improve the health, safety and quality of life on the installation.
"At the beginning of the survey, it is important for participants to select U.S. Army Pacific, located in the drop-down box," LaShier said. "From there, members will be able to select U.S. Army Korea -- Camp Humphreys as their installation."
All responses are anonymous and data will be kept confidential and housed on a protected, secure server.

When beginning the survey, identify the MACOM (choose USARPAC), then identify which installation where you live (Humphreys; even if you're living at Osan or Suwon Air Base, please choose Humphreys), and later in the survey, be sure to identify your category (Military, DOD Civilian, Family Member, Retiree).
