Public urged to weigh in on health issues at community forums, online
- on May 7, 2012
Findings from the recently released Douglas County Community Health Assessment will be presented at four upcoming forums.
Residents are urged to attend the forums 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.
Forum dates are:
- Wednesday, May 9 – Community Health Facility, Lawrence, 3:30-5 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 15 – Eudora Community Center, Eudora at 7-8:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, May 16 – Library, Baldwin City at 7-8:30 p.m.
- Thursday, May 17 – Community Health Facility, Lawrence at 7-8:30 p.m.
Child care will be provided at both Lawrence forums. For residents unable to attend the forums, a website is now available for people to post their comments and engage in a discussion on the results of the assessment at continue-the-conversation.org.
