Healthy Worcester Planning/Improvement Initiative Announces Community Dialogues

For Immediate Release: 6/22/2012 8:18 am

Worcester, MA (June 22, 2012) - The Healthy Worcester Planning/Improvement Initiative Advisory Council will be hosting Community Town Hall Forums and dialogue sessions throughout the City over the next several weeks as the second phase of the initiative's health assessment/planning process.

Data compiled from these sessions will be incorporated into the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) which will identify assets and priority areas, and define a strategy for community health improvement. The community dialogues will be conducted in several formats, to include two (2) Town Hall meetings, individual outreach/surveys conducted at local cultural festivals throughout Worcester and focus groups involving representatives from business and faith based communities.

The goals of these dialogue sessions are to learn the community, present prevalent data on prominent health issues and elicit feedback in order to gather valuable qualitative data that will be integrated into the community health assessment as a preliminary step to completing the CHIP. The public is invited to participate in these events.
