Department Sets Listening Sessions in Rock Springs, Evanston

August 28, 2019

The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is inviting local clients, providers and residents to share thoughts and ideas on health-related issues and needs during structured listening sessions planned for Rock Springs and Evanston.

  • The Rock Springs event will be September 10 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Ferrero Room at the Rock Springs Public Library, which is located at 400 C Street.
  • The Evanston event will be September 11 from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Uinta County Library, which is located at 701 Main Street.

“These sessions are opportunities for us to hear from our department’s clients, local healthcare providers and community members about health-related issues,” said Michael Ceballos, WDH director.

“We want to know what’s working and what could be improved. A better understanding of local perspectives helps us make the most of our available resources,” he said.

The department expects to schedule similar sessions in other Wyoming communities over the coming months.

Local residents who may be especially interested in attending include:

  • Clients of various WDH programs
  • Local area healthcare providers
  • Community coalition members
  • Anyone interested in Wyoming healthcare issues
