Community Health Assessment Process Invites All To Join Online Meeting

WAYNE – Northeast Nebraska health officials will be hosting a meeting for all to be a part of a “Working Together, We Create A Healthier Community” session.

On Monday, March 11 join the meeting from your computer from 1:30 – 3 p.m.

Pender Community Hospital, Providence Medical Center and the Northeast Nebraska Public Health Department are collaborating on a Community Health Assessment Process. This is in attempts to build a strategic plan to be used to improve the health of northeast Nebraska.

These partners of community health need the public’s input and expertise to help answer ‘How well do we, as a community, work together to keep people informed about and engaged in local health issues’?

Discussion items will include:

  • How do we keep all people in our community informed about health issues?
  • How do we support healthy living by helping people develop new skills and behaviors?
  • How well is risk communication disseminated in our community?
  • What formal and informal partnerships exist to promote health improvement?


People among the conversations will feature health educators; public information officers, schools nurses, community and neighborhood organizations as well as anyone else interested in this topic.

Plan on connecting early to ensure the audio/video is working correctly. The room will be open 30 minutes before start of the meeting as participation will work best using a headset and microphone.
