Wayne Forward Holds Health Forum On Thursday

Wayne Forward will present “The Health of Wayne County: Addressing the Social Determinants of Health” in the Wayne Community College cafeteria (located inside the Wayne Learning Center) at 5:30 P.M. on Thursday, November 7th.

The forum will include a presentation by keynote speaker E. Benjamin Money, MPH, the Deputy Secretary for Health Services from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as well as a panel discussion with representatives from the education, housing, health and workforce development sectors.  The event will include the sharing of personal stories of those impacted with specific social determinants as well as informational booths.

Please join us to learn more about how health and poverty are interrelated in general and for Wayne County. We hope to orient our community stakeholders toward a common purpose in improving the health of our community, especially for the many that face the spectrum of poverty related challenges. A shared understanding of the forces and the dynamics involved with the social determinants of health can promote collective action that will more effectively support all our missions to serve and change lives.

The forum is free and open to the public but those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP by emailing [email protected]. A light meal will be provided. Organizations wishing to have an information booth at the forum are encouraged to email [email protected].
