Congratulations to Corey Minor Smith and all Stark County Women’s Hall of Fame Class of 2016 inductees!
You are cordially invited to a SE Canton Resident meeting to introduce the Canton Invest Health initiative. The purpose of the gathering is to share a process for improving the health outcomes of individuals and families residing in the southeast quadrant of Canton and encourage open conversation with those that have a direct interest in this area of the community. Invest Health is a national program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest and premier funder of health. The initiative takes a targeted aim at improving the health factors that impact low income and at-risk neighborhoods. The Canton Invest Health team hopes to encourage and facilitate change within the southeast quadrant, working in partnerships with all community stakeholders [residents, businesses, social service organizations, schools, religious institutions, and government representatives] to measurably impact health disparities.
