Albany- For the next three weeks, surveyors will be calling 400 households in Dougherty, Randolph, Terrell and Lee counties.

The 5-minute call is designed to gather information about men's health and the kinds of services they want.

"When we do a survey, we call households in our own zip code and in our own neighborhood, and therefore we're getting a fresh accurate account of just exactly what people want. If you want to know what people want the best thing to do is to ask them directly," says Darrell Sabbs of the Phoebe Putney Community Health Institute.

The information will be compiled and used to determine how extensive the need is for a men's health center in Southwest Georgia.
