LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (April 15, 2019) – Beginning April 22, the County of Lake Health Services Department and the Board of Supervisors are collaborating with Hope Rising and other partners to present Community Visioning Forums throughout the county on the topic of Community Health and Wellness.
Forum panelists, County representatives and staff and community leaders from partner organizations, will share information with residents on some truly outstanding resources that are available, and programs that are already improving our health outcomes. They will also seek public input on next steps.
“Engaging with local residents, and hearing their voices, is one of the best ways to develop understanding surrounding community health and wellness,” notes Health Services Director, Denise Pomeroy. “We need to hear what challenges people are facing. We need the community’s input to identify gaps in local services and systems, and plan the best way forward. Promoting Public Health is a community effort.”
Community members’ input and information presented at these meetings will contribute to the development of a Community Health Improvement Plan.
“We are committed to working with local residents toward a healthier Lake County,” assures Pomeroy.

Since early 2018, the Board of Supervisors and County staff have been collaborating with County residents surrounding critical priorities through series of Town Hall-style Community Visioning Forums. The community’s priorities are reflected in the County’s Vision 2028 statement, and the Lake County Economic Development Strategy, which was recently adopted by all three local governments.
