How much progress was made last year in dealing with the top five health concerns in the county?  Do you know what those leading health challenges are?  All county residents are invited to learn the answers at the 2nd Annual Public Report Meeting, on Tuesday, April 29 at the Hunterdon Medical Center auditorium from 5:30-7:30pm.

County Health Officer, John Beckley, will host the open-to-the-public session, offering insights about the top five concerns including mental health; weight/physical activity; cardiovascular disease; drugs, alcohol and tobacco; and access to healthcare.

Other speakers include Ron Sworen, Hunterdon County freeholder; Robert Wise, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hunterdon Healthcare System; Dr. Jorge Berkowitz, Chairman of the Community Health Advisory Committee; Kathy Horn, Director of Infection Control Services at Hunterdon Medical Center, and Rose Mehrlust, Partnership for Health coordinator.

The group will report what is being learned about the specific health challenges and outline the concerns each presents to everyone living or working in Hunterdon County. They will also discuss progress being made by the Partnership for Health Action Teams as they work to achieve the goals of the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  That plan can be viewed at http://www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/pdf/health/final_chip2007.pdf.
