Allina Health hosts upcoming community health dialogues

MINNEAPOLIS 03/03/2016

On Friday, April 1, and Wednesday, April 6, Allina Health will host community health dialogues to gather ideas about what Allina Health can do to address community health needs.

Allina Health would like to hear from community members to help determine what role they can play in addressing important health issues in their community.

"We are looking for feedback from community members with many perspectives − as residents, workers and neighbors. Your input will guide decisions about community-based programs and services over the next three years," said Craig Malm, director of Community Engagement in the Northwest Metro for Allina Health. 

The community health dialogue is an opportunity for community members to provide their input on priority health areas including: mental health and addiction; senior health and chronic disease prevention; and health management. All residents are invited to attend one of these dialogues:
