Residents to talk about their ideas for improving community health tonight and Friday evening
A community engagement event is scheduled tonight and Friday evening on how to improve community health.
Residents are being asked for their ideas on how to improve health here.
“Your Vision for Health in Wyandotte County” will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, and from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, at Douglass Elementary School, 1310 N. 9th, Kansas City, Kan.
The event is sponsored by the Kansas Health Foundation in partnership with Communities Creating Opportunity.
