Healthy community vision session planned Mach 20 in Backus

Cass County Health, Human and Veterans Services-Public Health will host a listening session with the community about creating a vision and planning for healthier communities.

The Cass County community is invited to come and share future visions of what a healthier community could be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 20, at the Cass County Government Center Meeting Room at 218 Washburn Ave. E., Backus.

The health of communities is dependent on many aspects when factoring in individual, systems and population levels of health.

After input, key community health issues will be identified and a community health improvement plan will be established through partnerships and collaboration.
