The 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health is working with community groups and organizations to help make the Johnstown region healthier, The Tribune-Democrat reports.

    HEALTH MATTERS | Improving health takes a community
    When they set out to make the Cambria-Somerset county region healthier, founders of the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health knew they had set a lofty goal. Even focusing in for the first year on preventing diabetes, and improving diabetes management and treatment, would take a Herculean effort.

AGENDA: This kick off meeting will begin a process of collectively examining and augmenting; 1. Our current community voting meeting procedures, 2. Francisville RCO practices and meeting notification portals, 3. How the City/Community Group Partnership is designed to work verses (our) current relationship. It is our hope that this meeting kicks off an on-going conversation that will start to erode a great deal of the racial and economic polarization that currently prevents all of us from working together on common issues, as well as to clarify what FNDC is and does for the community. We hope to see you there… Strong Participation is critical to reaching collective consensus on matters being reviewed and revised. See additional information below
