Healthy Communities March public meeting is on Thursday, March 14th at 9am at the Silver Springs Community Center, 2945 Fort Churchill Street (in the Lahontan Room, on the left side of the building that also houses the Senior Center).
Guest speakers this month include Friends of Nevada Wilderness and Nevada Lifespan Respite Care Coalition. The respite care coalition will present on respite awareness and access and ask for input from our region on that topic. We hope you can join us for breakfast, discussion and planning!
What Is the Coalition? Whether its organic school gardens, free dental clinics, tobacco and opioid use prevention, science and arts education, job skills training, or suicide prevention, Healthy Communities takes a multi-faceted approach to promoting opportunities for health and wellness with a prevention first approach. Healthy Communities is composed of dozens of local, state, federal and tribal group partners; hundreds of community volunteers; a board of directors and staff, all working together on a common mission to strengthen communities in the Lyon and Storey regions by increasing access to 1)health care; 2) affordable, locally grown food; and 3) sustainable community development opportunities that serve the common good and build local assets and self-reliance.
