The Steuben County Public Health department invites the public to help pick community health goals at its “Health Priorities Setting” meeting from 9 a.m.-noon, May 7 at the Steuben County Annex, 20 E. Morris Street.
The public meeting will help Steuben Public Health and local hospitals set up priorities for the next three-year Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
“Feedback from organizations and community members will help us decide which health areas need the most focus,” said county Public Health Director Darlene Smith. The best way for us to know what the community feels is important health topics are for the members to tell us directly at this meeting.”
Priorities set in the current CHIP, approved in October 2016, included preventing chronic disease and promoting healthy women, infants and children.
Participating organizations of the CHIP team, Smart Steuben, also include Arnot Health, Guthrie Corning and St. James hospitals and community health organizations.
Community members and organizations are asked to RSVP by May 3 by calling (607) 664-2438 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
