Town Hall Lecture on Community & Health, October 20 in Bethlehem
This is exciting (almost as exciting as the news that Groupon is now in the Lehigh Valley) — the City of Bethlehem and Lehigh University’s South Side Initiative have teamed up for a Town Hall lecture series.
The first lecture is scheduled for this Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00 pm at the City of Bethlehem Town Hall, 10 E. Church St in Bethlehem [map]. The topic for this lecture? Health and community, with the session entitled “Have a Healthier Bethlehem Now: Community Approaches to Individual Health.” Lehigh Sociology professor Judith Lasker will discuss her research on how social ties and organizations can improve health, and Kellyn Foundation co-founder Dr. Meagan Grega will discuss the foundation’s efforts to fight obesity.
To learn more about the Town Hall lecture series, read the Express Times article on this topic.
The lecture is free and open to all. If you have any questions or comments, you may e-mail John Pettegrew of the South Side Initiative at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope you are able to attend.
