Public Forums Focus on Family Health Programs and Needs

3/21/2014

The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has scheduled a series of community meetings to discuss the health and needs of women, mothers, children, adolescents, including children and youth with special health-related challenges.

“Every five years we go through a ‘needs assessment’ process for the families we serve with our programs,” said Linda McElwain, Maternal and Child Health Unit manager with WDH. “It’s important for us to hear from Wyoming residents regarding their concerns and ideas about our programs and the health-related challenges they may face.”

Community meetings to help identify health priorities for Wyoming families are scheduled to continue in the coming weeks:

*Sundance, March 31, 5-6 p.m., Sundance Public Library
