Health care providers, mental health professionals, school personnel and community members are invited to attend a free online symposium discussion on social connectedness presented by Kane Health Counts on Thursday, October 6th from noon to 1:30 p.m. Guest speakers Padraic Stanley and Dr. Marissa Happ will be discussing how social connections have a positive impact on health.
The event will address the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) and the top health needs facing Kane County. The discussion will continue as our local experts highlight how human connection can improve health outcomes, and what we can do in our community to support these efforts.
