Will County’s Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) Collaborative will host its Annual Fall Forum from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m., on Friday, September 30, at Adventist Medical Center Bolingbrook, 500 Remington Blvd. in Bolingbrook.
Registration is still available for the seventh Annual Fall Forum, which will focus on health equity. Public health is what a society does collectively to ensure conditions for people to be healthy. Champions of health equity face a challenge, given the inequitable distribution of money, employment, education and other important resources that determine health and well-being.
Several speakers will discuss possible ways that Will County residents, community organizations, and the public health system can work together to achieve health equity.
Speakers will include: Will County Health Department Executive Director Sue Olenek, Adventist Medical Center Bolingbrook Director of Ancillary Service and Community Benefits Kathy Sievertsen, Will County MAPP Collaborative Coordinator Jennifer Gorszczyk, Cook County Department of Public Health Regional Health Officer Jim Bloyd, Research & Consulting Group Mari Gallagher, and Will County MAPP Collaborative Action Team Co-Chairs.
The Fall Forum is an opportunity for new and existing partners to come together and talk about issues concerning Will County. This event is open to the public and free to attend.
