Free health training opportunity for this area 15 Aug 2017

This meeting shines light on why environmental, social and political conditions are connected to health; why recent meetings on sidewalks, traffic and spraying are coming from more state departments that appear to be working together to help improve Kentuckian's health. Our state has poor rankings in health, exercise, illegal drug use and smoking. - LW
