Let us know how we’re doing! PPI communications and Engagement survey

We want to hear from you! On June 23rd, PPI Communications emailed all PPI portal registrants a link to a survey. Your input will help us continue to refine and improve how we are engaging and communicating with you. The results of this survey and any action items that come out of it will be shared in an upcoming Biweekly Broadcast, following completion of the survey.

The survey will take less than five minutes to complete and will remain open until July 9, 2021. Click here to access the survey.
