Findings from the 2016/2017 Lucas County Community Health Assessment – which provides an accurate picture of how Lucas County children, youth and adults are faring with their health and wellbeing – will be presented at two free and open meetings in September:
- Community Briefing from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday, September 25 in the McMaster Center of the Toledo-Lucas County Main Library, 325 Michigan St., Toledo.
- A Closer Look at Minority Health, which will detail more specifics related to the health of African American and Latino residents, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday, September 26 at Neighborhood Health Association’s Nexus Health Care, 1415 Jefferson Ave., Toledo.
Healthy Lucas County, a collaboration of community health improvement organizations, has performed a community health assessment since 1999. Members of the Healthy Lucas County collaboration use the data to formulate a Community Health Improvement Plan with priorities and action steps.
Individual healthcare organizations, social service agencies, government entities, educational institutions and others also use the data to make decisions about community health improvement efforts.
Registration for both meetings will begin 30 minutes before the program starts. For more information, please contact Healthy Lucas County at firstname.lastname@example.org.
