Information Collection Request Title: Corps Community Day Event FormNEW Abstract: Corps Community Day was created in 2011 and celebrates the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) every October during National Primary Care Week. The NHSC is a program administered by the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS) within HRSA. The goals of Corps Community Day encompass the following: increase awareness of the NHSC to potential applicants and the greater primary health community; create a sense of community and connectedness among NHSC program participants, alumni, partners, and staff; and underscore the NHSC's role in bringing primary health care services to the nation's neediest communities. Current program participants, alumni, NHSC Ambassadors, sites, primary care organizations, and professional associations plan events and report the details of their events to BCRS so that they can be added to the state-by-state map of events. In order to avoid duplication of effort, eliminate confusion regarding allowable event dates, avoid data entry errors, and implement a brief post-event satisfaction survey, BCRS would like to implement a standard form that event planners will use to report to BCRS. The fillable form will be available online and will have less than 20 fields for event planners to populate to submit for inclusion on the map. There will also be approximately five fields to populate following the event to measure satisfaction. Both the pre-event and post-event data fields will be held in one form. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below. The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
