Northampton – Creating healthy communities requires collaboration with local residents. For that reason, Cooley Dickinson invites area residents to its Community Health Needs Assessment Forum, Thursday, June 16, from 5–7 pm at the Northampton Senior Center, 67 Conz Street.

From 5-5:30 pm a light supper will be available; the program begins at 5:30 and will conclude by 7 pm.

Topics to be discussed include an overview of the health assessment process and a review of data, including statistics, focus group and interview results. Participants will also work in small groups to establish priorities and possible strategies to improve health.

This forum is free, open to the public and accessible by public transportation. For more information, contact Jeff Harness, director, community health and government relations, or call 413-582-2035.
