(October 31, 2012) What do you think makes a healthy community? Share your thoughts and you'll receive dinner, a $10 gas card, and the appreciation of the sponsors of a major community health assessment project in Northeast Michigan. A focus group is planned for Presque Isle County residents on Thursday, November 8, 2012, 6-7:30 PM at the Presque Isle District Library in Rogers City. Space is limited to 10 participants and registration is required; please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants will be discussing two questions: What are the most important issues that affect health in the community? and What needs to be done to improve health and quality of life?
Additional focus groups are planned in Cheboygan, on November 14, at the McLaren Northern Michigan Cheboygan Campus and in Atlanta, on November 15, at the Dinner Table Restaurant.
The focus groups are part of a major community health assessment project sponsored by District Health Department #4, Health Department of Northwest Michigan, Charlevoix Area Hospital, McLaren Northern Michigan, the Northern Health Plan, and Otsego Memorial Hospital.
