Langlade Hospital To Host Town Hall Events In Upcoming Weeks
February 21, 2013
What concerns you most when it comes to your future health? That is what Langlade Hospital wants to find out as they plan to host a series of town hall-style meetings across Langlade County over the next several weeks.
During the McDonald's Breakfast Club earlier this month, hospital Director Dave Schneider provided the reason for these meetings. "We're really trying to reach out, reach as many people as we possibly can all over Langlade County, who want to talk about health issues that concern them. We want to know what troubles people most; what do they see as (the) most significant health problems we face in Langlade County. We want to hear from everybody."
The hospital plans to work with other organizations in the area to build an action plan to address the issues brought up during these meetings. Schneider said the first of these will take place in the northern part of Langlade County next week. "And we're holding one in Elcho on February 26th at 6 p.m. at the Elcho School Theater. We'll have a town hall meeting in White Lake on March 7th at 6 p.m. at the White Lake School Commons. And Antigo will have a town hall meeting on March 12th at 6 p.m. at the CoVantage Credit Union. And then, again, at the Rolling Town Hall in the Town of Rolling on March 27th at 6 p.m."
All meetings will run until 7:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served. Schneider added people from the hospital will be there to assist in facilitate the discussion and provide topic starters if needed. For more information on these meetings, you can call the hospital at 715-623-9289.
