Care Sessions from Public Health, Oct. 20 & 24

Pitkin County Public Health invites anyone who lives, works, and plays in Pitkin County to participate in two virtual Care Sessions, Oct. 20 & 24.

The background

Pitkin County Public Health conducted a community health assessment in the spring and summer of 2022 to understand the health of our community. This showed where we are doing well and where there are opportunities to improve. Two areas of opportunity are:

1. Access to health care, including mental health
2. Climate change
