ACHD Sets 13 Public Meetings on
Community Health Assessment

Invites Residents to Discuss Issues Affecting Their Community’s Health

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Health Department has scheduled 13 public meetings, one in each Allegheny County Council District, which will serve as an opportunity to disseminate information on the current health of the County and engage the public in a community discussion about health issues.

"Our Health, Our Voice will be the theme of our public outreach campaign as we share key information about our population’s health and hear from residents about what issues are affecting their community’s health. The meetings are critical to helping the Health Department and residents work together to create a countywide health improvement plan and move toward a common vision of making Allegheny County the healthiest county in the nation," said Health Director Dr. Karen Hacker.

Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting in their County Council District, but are also welcome to attend any of the other meetings.  Light refreshments will be available. Please contact Casey Monroe at 412-578-8364 or cmonroe@achd.net for more information or if special accommodations are needed.

County Council Member John Palmiere, Chair of the Health & Human Services Committee, is excited about the announcement: "It is a wonderful thing that Dr. Hacker and the Health Department are going out into the community to have this conversation. It is unprecedented, but exactly what we need to focus on an agenda that is reflective of our community and really addresses the issues that are most important to our residents."
