Community Health Action Plan Workshop I
TIME: Thursday, September 22nd, 3:30-7:30PM
Rockaway Waterfront Alliance (RWA) is hosting a collaborative process with local residents, community members and stakeholders at Rockaway Institute for a Sustainable Environment (RISE) to develop an action plan for improving the health and wellbeing of the Far Rockaway, Arverne and Edgemere communities. We invite community members to engage in this vital community planning process. Register below to attend.
Phase I identified priority issues in Far Rockaway, Arverne and Edgemere including: unmet mental health needs, unmet medical needs, violence, baby-friendly hospitals, high school graduations, controlled high blood pressure, sugary drinks and smoking. This Fall, RWA will lead the Phase II community engagement process with a diverse group of members and stakeholders to set the top healthy priorities and to develop a community health action plan.
Workshops will include healthy and delicious local food and refreshments for participants.
