District Health Dept#10 (DHD#10) in Crawford County, will be hosting a community wide Open House on Monday, May 21, from 3:00 to 6:00 PM at the District Health Department, 5681 S.M37, Baldwin, MI. The community is welcome to drop in and learn about the various programs offered at DHD#10, plus play some games, win some prizes, and have some fun.
“Many of the community members may not be aware of the services provided by DHD#10 and this event will be helpful in promoting all of the amazing programs we have to offer” said Kristina Limoges, DHD#10 clerk. “This will be a fun way for the community to learn how the Health Dept. can support them in living happier and healthier lives.”
A recent survey conducted by DHD#10, reported that 26% of the Lake County community surveyed, were unaware of the services provided at the health department. This event will help bring awareness to our community, while promoting health and reducing negative outcomes in Lake County.
