The Cudahy, Oak Creek, and South Milwaukee-St. Francis Health Departments have surveyed, interviewed, and held focus groups with community members and partner organizations to better understand how COVID-19 impacted our communities and to determine how we can support our communities using a collaborative and equitable approach. Join us to see the information we have gathered as well as give your feedback on the topic! 

Who: Anyone who lives, works, plays, or learns in the South Shore communities of Cudahy, Oak Creek, South Milwaukee, or St. Francis is invited to join us.

What: During these events, you will have an opportunity to view results from recent surveys, focus groups, and interviews. You will also have an opportunity to share your experiences and will be invited to participate in the creation of a community map that will explore what we need, in our communities, to be healthy and thrive. 

When/Where: If you are unable to attend this event, check out the other dates we are offering here.

Why: These events will help your local health departments, as well as other South Shore agencies, learn about the biggest needs that exist in the South Shore. These discussions will also direct future programming and services provided in our communities. Attendees will receive a gift for participating (while supplies last) and can enter for a chance to win a raffle prize!
