Health Director to Outline the State of Louisville’s Health
Thursday March 1, 2012
In her first address to the community since coming to Louisville, Public Health and Wellness Director Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt will share current data on the health of the city.
Louisville’s Health address will take place on Tuesday, March 6 from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Department of Public Health and Wellness at 400 E. Gray St.
Dr. Nesbitt will highlight the major health challenges that Louisville confronts and what we can do to become a healthier community. She will also discuss significant health disparities that impact quality of life and prevent our most vulnerable residents from living healthy and productive lives.
As part of her address Dr. Nesbitt will announce a series of community meetings designed to survey Louisville residents, the leaders of community based organizations, physicians and business leaders on their experiences in accessing health services as well as their perceptions of quality of care.
