Truckee Meadows Tomorrow community forum focuses on health and wellness



Risky behaviors and their impact on community health and wellness will be the topic of a March 31 forum presented by Truckee Meadows Tomorrow (TMT.)

At the event, TMT will set the stage with a briefing that outlines how our community ranks on the following indicators:  access to healthcare, wellness & preventive healthcare, mental health & social wellbeing, and perception of safety. A panel of experts will then discuss the impacts on community health resources, referrals and networks resulting from risky behaviors, as well as ideas to make prevention a health priority for youth, adults and policymakers. This is the first in a series of quarterly meetings focusing on the community’s quality of life indicators.

WHAT: TMT Community Forum

WHEN: Thursday, March 31, 5-7 p.m.

WHERE: KNPB Channel 5 Public Broadcasting, 1670 North Virginia St. (on the UNR campus)
