Upcoming Community Forums on Lehigh Valley Health Department

BoH logoRenewLV, in conjunction with the League of Women Voters (Lehigh County and Northampton County chapters), have scheduled two upcoming community forums on the effort to establish a Lehigh Valley Health Department. Set for early December, these forums will update the public on the progress made thus far in planning the bi-county health department, and will discuss the many key benefits of a regional approach to public health. Panel speakers will include members of the Lehigh Valley Board of Health and other public health leaders. Please note the following dates:
