Health Department to Present at Newton County Education Summit

Posted on November 1st, 2013

Join the Newton County School System and other community partners for an Education Summit focusing on the future of Newton County. Each summit is scheduled so guests can attend the continental breakfast after registration; the superintendent’s address; and four breakout sessions.

Parents, business and community leaders, and all other NCSS stakeholders are encouraged to attend. Admission is free.

The next two Summits are:

Saturday, November 2 at Newton High

Saturday, November 9 at Alcovy High

The Summits are from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Representatives from the Health Department will be presenting “Building a Healthy Community.”  The session will give parents an overview of the community health needs identified by Newton Medical Center in a needs assessment.  Participants will be invited to be a part of determining next steps to improve community health.
