2/11/2019 - NEW DATE Community Conversation - We Want to Hear from You

Due to snow in the forecast, the Fairfield Community Conversation has been postponed until Thursday, March 14th.

The Fairfield Health Department is conducting its fourth Community Health Needs Assessment and is asking residents to help by providing their feedback.

Fairfield residents are asked to attend a community conversation on Thursday, March 14th from 6 pm – 7:30 pm at Vazzy’s 19th Hole (2390 Easton Turnpike, Fairfield) to discuss the health needs and concerns in Fairfield. Light appetizers and refreshments will be provided. Additionally, Stop & Shop gift cards will be given to the first 20 people who RSVP. Space is limited. Residents can RSVP to Health Equity Solutions by calling (860) 461-7637.

“This is a great way for residents to vocalize the health issues here in Fairfield”, said Sands Cleary, Director of Health for the Fairfield Health Department. “Results from this conversation, along with telephone surveys conducted in the summer and fall of 2018, will give insight to the needs of the Fairfield community and from there we will develop a plan to address those needs”, Cleary explained.

Fairfield is participating in this assessment as a member of the Primary Care Action Group (PCAG), which is a collaboration of area hospitals, community health centers, local health departments, and other organizations in the towns and cities of Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford, and Trumbull. The primary focus of PCAG is to enhance the health of the residents of these communities.
