Community Forum to Reveal County Residents’ Top Concerns

The results of a county-wide assessment will be shared at a free public forum on September 24, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Centralia College’s Corbet Theatre. A live broadcast will be viewable at Centralia College East in Morton. Top concerns raised by residents as well as trends affecting the health and vitality of Lewis County will be presented, and guest speaker Dr. Donna Beegle will discuss multigenerational poverty and how to break the cycle. In 2013 a group of community partners initiated a community-wide strategic planning process for improving the health of Lewis County. This process will help identify and prioritize strategic issues and coordinate activities to address them. “The goal is to address our county’s most pressing health issues in an inclusive and well-informed way,” said Danette York, Director of Lewis County Public Health & Social Services. “And by health we are talking about the well-being of the community as a whole which includes economic, educational, environmental, and behavioral health as well as physical health.”
The first step in this process was an assessment to better understand the factors contributing to the health of Lewis County. The assessment combines the results of almost 600 surveys with input for community leaders as well as statistical data.
