[LIBERTY] – Sullivan County Public Health Services, along with Cornell Cooperative Extension and Sullivan Renaissance, will be host a focus group to gather thoughts and input that will help update Sullivan County’s Health Improvement Plan. The public is invited to share their concerns and ideas on advancing the well-being of Sullivan County on Wednesday, November 2 at 6:00 p.m. at Cornell Cooperative Extension.
Data gathered from the focus group will be used to inform the Community Health Assessment Update, a tool to assess the state of health in the county and determine top priorities of residents. Areas of greatest need will help focus the goals for Sullivan County Public Health and its community partners.
Sullivan County Public Health Services has a mission to serve county residents and is interested in prioritizing public health issues and developing a plan focused on meeting the needs of the community. Past areas of concern include preventing chronic disease, promoting healthy women, infants and children, supporting mental health initiatives and preventing substance abuse. Strategies based on best practices have been formulated and implemented to address these issues. The November focus group is part of a series of meetings that will help realign the county’s approach. Residents may attend any session to participate in this effort. Additional focus groups will be held:
Wednesday, October 19, 6 p.m. at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library, Monticello
Wednesday, October 26, 6 p.m. at the Hortonville Fire Department, Hortonville
