Health Research Live!
Understanding Community Health

Community discussions on health research priorities

Join the conversation about health research being conducted in the community. Hear from scientific researchers, community members, and organizations—all providing their perspectives on important health issues.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

How do we understand and address community health needs in our local area? Every three years a number of community health partners in the Upper Valley facilitate a Community Health Needs Assessment. This contributes to a community health improvement plan that guides numerous organizations to address relevant health issues.

Learn more about community health needs assessments, how organizations use these to affect public health in our area, and how to participate in an upcoming assessment.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
