We got through the pandemic, it at least most of it. How did you do? Was it hard financially? What about emotionally?  The City of Texarkana Texas wants to know how well you made it through and how well our community did.

The Texarkana Bowie County Family Health Center has set up a health disparities survey so they can gather information about different experiences with COVID-19 and related issues in our community. They will look at these surveys so they can better prepare for a pandemic in the future.
