Frederick County Health Care Coalition Hosts Virtual Open Session

FREDERICK, MD -- Members of the public have an opportunity to provide input to the triennial process that builds community health in Frederick County.  On January 19, the Frederick County Health Care Coalition (FCHCC) will host a dynamic virtual session to share recent findings in five key areas from its yearlong data gathering process and will gather the public’s ideas for building better community health.  

“The health of our community is like a building—it depends on a strong and stable foundation. Every sector contributes to laying that foundation, and we all depend on its durability to prop us up. Public input is an important building component, so we are eager to involve people from across Frederick County,” said Malcolm Furgol, FCHCC Executive Director.  

All are invited.  Registration is required by January 12 for this free event.   

Event:                Frederick County Health Priorities Public Input Session

Date:                  Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Time:                  2:00pm – 4:00pm 

Location:            Zoom

Registration:     Signup Here by January 12, 2022, or follow this link: bit.ly/32FMJql

Subject matter experts will present on five current health priorities, and then small groups will discuss the building components that are essential to improve the health of our community. The five priorities were selected by the FCHCC’s Board of Directors based on data gathered over the last year for the upcoming 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment. The five current health priorities include diabetes, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in adolescents, early prenatal care, mental health, and obesity in adults and adolescents.
