Community Listening Session; Human Service Safety Net Overview
Participate in a Community Listening Session
What determines how well and how long you live?
Would it surprise you to know that, even in Johnson County, where you live matters?
If you are a Johnson County resident, join us on March 21 at 1:30pm for an hour-long conversation about how you experience health and quality of life.
The event is a part of the planning process for the Johnson County Health Equity Network - a UCS' facilitated initiative to address health disparities in Johnson County.
Creating health equity ensures that everyone who lives in Johnson County has a fair opportunity to be as healthy as possible. That means understanding and removing obstacles to health like poverty and discrimination and their consequences - lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care.
The March 21 listening session will provide important details about the everyday experiences of Johnson County residents, which will help the Health Equity Network develop a plan to improve health and well-being for everyone.
Participants will receive a gift card as compensation for their time, and refreshments will be served. Seating is limited, so RSVP today!
