Community Conversations encourage downtown Allentown residents to share their input on health care issues

This year the Downtown Allentown Community Development Initiative in partnership with Allentown Promise Neighborhood will hold a series of events called Community Conversations. The goal of these events is to encourage APN residents to share their feedback and input on a variety of topics that affect their quality of life.

The first Community Conversation, entitled “Working Your Way Through Health Care,” will take place on Thursday, March 31 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Allentown Hotel on 7th and Hamilton Streets. The program will include tips on how residents can navigate the health care system, and also provide advice on paying their medical bills.

St. Luke’s University Hospital Network, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Sacred Heart Hospital, Neighborhood Health Centers of the Lehigh Valley, Allentown Health Bureau and other community organizations will have information tables at the event as well and can answer questions. Complimentary refreshments will also be provided, and childcare will also be provided for free during the event.

The APN staff is assisting DACDI in coordinating the event, structuring its format, and collecting the questions for the Q&A portion of the program. The nonprofit organization is doing outreach in downtown Allentown to invite residents to the free event.
