» KY Youth Advocates/United Healthcare Statewide Survey
Kentucky Youth Advocates and United Healthcare are conducting a statewide survey among K-12 education leaders to understand lessons they have learned as they have supported students and families during the pandemic, as well as to identify potential solutions and effective communication and messaging strategies to strengthen teen COVID-19 vaccination rates.

In appreciation for taking the time to complete the survey, educators can enter a drawing for the chance to win one of five $25 gift cards to the Kentucky business of their choice. The entry form is separate from the survey so the responses remain anonymous.
