Healthy Archuleta to host Community Conversation this afternoon

13

By Rose Chavez | Food System/Food Equity Coalition

Today, Thursday, June 23, from 2 to 3 p.m., Healthy Archuleta, doing business as the FSFE — Food Coalition, will host a community conversation that will engage the health care community and everyday residents about the types of preventive and primary care services that are available in Archuleta County. 

Healthy Archuleta, in partnership with Archuleta County, is working to complete a nutrition security health equity assessment over the next couple of years. We are looking at two broad questions that will help capture people’s voices/experiences related to food and preventative health care issues and opportunities in Archuleta County. 

Thursday’s conversation will continue to focus on our community’s experience and will feature Dr. Julie Buchner as it relates to preventative health care access and utilization (coverage, timeliness, workforce and service). 

According to HealthCare.gov, “Preventative services is defined as routine health care that includes screenings, check-ups and patient counseling to prevent illnesses, disease or other health problems.” (https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/preventive-services/).
