Have You Checked Out Our Regional Health Page?
With the upcoming meeting of the Lehigh Valley Health Commission (at which members of the county legislatures will be reviewing the plan and budget for the Lehigh Valley Health Department), I wanted to make sure our readers were familiar with RenewLV’s Regional Health Initiative page.
On our website, you’ll find useful resources, including our fact sheet about the regional health department, a list of organizations that have endorsed the department, and — most importantly — a Contact Your Elected Official page that facilitates communication with your elected county legislator.
We’ve mentioned all the various ways that a regional health department will benefit our community. Now we need the community to come out in support of this at the upcoming Health Commission meeting on July 19. The meeting is set for 6:30 pm in County Council Chambers at the Northampton County Courthouse, 669 Washington Street in Easton [map]. County officials need to hear that the Lehigh Valley cannot afford to go without a regional health department any longer.
