Mobilizing people to advocate for policies that will advance community health
Are you interested in helping to advance public policies that can improve health and wellness in your community? Each year lawmakers in Vermont and New Hampshire consider dozens of bills that, if passed into law, can significantly impact community access to the conditions known to contribute to health, such as education, health care, housing, transportation, nutrition, employment, and healthy early childhood development.
Partners for Community Wellness is working together with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Government Relations team to host three workshops to help equip you to advocate for state legislation affecting community access to health and wellness resources. There are many actions you can take, including some that require just 60 minutes of your time. You can sign up for any or all of the workshops depending upon what you most need to hone your abilities as an advocate.
