October 27th - "Public Health Matters" Policy Forum Series
The theme for this year’s breakfast forum series is all about changing views in public health and health care. There are tried and true recommendations that have stood the test of time. There are also recommendations that are no longer considered the best thing to do. Our four forums will bring together thought-leaders and public health advocates working to address what has withstood the test of time and what has changed.
Join us for our first session on October 27th from 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM CT at the New Brighton Community Center.Register Now
