Client Satisfaction Survey 

The state of Louisiana's STD/HIV Program Office is conducting a client satisfaction survey for all Ryan White Part B agencies (including SLAC).

There are two ways of completing this survey, which impacts funding for services such as case management, food pantry, medical transportation, and dental care. One way is to come into the SLAC office and ask for a survey; the other is to complete a survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RWptB_CSS2016.

Deadline for completing surveys is April 15th.  

Thanks for your help!
