Reminder for RenewLV/LWV Forum Tonight at 7PM in Coplay

Just a reminder that the first RenewLV/League of Women Voters Community Forum on the topic of Establishing a Lehigh Valley Health Department is happening tonight in Coplay, at the American Legion Post 426 (134 S. 2nd St. in Coplay – see directions below).

The forum will feature members of the Board of Health discussing the progress made thus far in drafting the staffing and services plan for the benefit of the entire Lehigh Valley. Additionally, community members and public health leaders will speak to the importance of expanding public health services to currently underserved areas within the region. Following the panel speakers, there will be a question and answer discussion.

The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served, thanks to the generous support of the League of Women Voters – Lehigh County.

We hope you can join us.
