Health improvement meetings Dec. 6

San Juan Basin Health Department is inviting community members to participate in the next step in creating a Public Health Improvement Plan for Archuleta and La Plata counties by participating in a summit. The meetings will take place Dec. 6 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Durango Community Recreation Center, 2700 Main Ave., and 2 to 4 p.m. at the Springs Resort, 165 Hot Springs Blvd. in Pagosa Springs.

There will be a presentation of results from the recently completed Community Health Priorities Survey. Individuals will then have the opportunity to help select one to two key health concerns for the two counties. Decisions from this meeting will be incorporated into a Public Health Improvement Plan which will be completed in 2013.
