The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department has held several public forums to discuss the findings of its Community Health Assessment, and the last one is today.
It will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine. Child care will be provided.
Findings from the recently released Douglas County Community Health Assessment will be presented. Residents are urged to attend to provide input on the results, identify root causes and to suggest the next steps in the process, which will involve the creation of a community health improvement plan.
About 60 people attended last Wednesday's forum in Lawrence. The group's top health concern was inadequate access to mental health services.
