WAMPSVILLE – The Madison County Department of Health has scheduled a series of small-group discussions across the county to gather input on a new community health improvement plan.
Every three years, the Health Department partners with Oneida Healthcare and Community Memorial Hospital in Hamilton to identify and address local health priorities through a community health assessment. The Health Department gathers information from its community partners, other health organizations, and members of the public.
The resulting plan is used to set priorities for initiatives and strategies to guide the work the Health Department and its partners to improve the overall health of Madison County.
Each discussion will have about 12 county residents. Pre-registration is preferred, but not required; walk-ins are welcome. There are eight sessions across the county, including the following local sessions:
Canastota: Thursday, Aug. 22, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Office for the Aging, 138 Dominic Bruno Blvd.
Oneida: Tuesday, Aug. 20, 10-11:30 a.m., Karing Kitchen, 116 West Grove St.
