At a time when both Johnson and Wyandotte counties are experiencing economic and infrastructure growth, we must not forget to remain in partnership with those who serve the poor, to continue to improve the health ranking of the region.  There are many who live in poverty in both counties and go unnoticed and underreported.  Come learn how poverty impacts their lives as it relates to health and wellness.

This event is free and open to the public.
