Community Listening Sessions Scheduled

Five community listening sessions will be held throughout the county designed to hear directly from residents about successes and challenges in their neighborhoods and communities related to our collective health, health care services and access to care.

Feedback from the listening sessions will help community leaders and organizations determine future efforts aimed at improving the health status of our residents. The same questions are asked at each session and are hosted by volunteer facilitators and notetakers.

Sessions are open to residents 18 years and older and no registration is needed. Questions can be directed to Olmsted County Public Health, 328-7500.
