LWV Rochester Fall Program & Luncheon

Saturday, November 19, 2022
Zumbro Valley Lutheran Church - 624 3rd Ave SW
10:00 social time
10:30 program
11:30 box lunch

Do you think health is determined only in a doctor’s office? Think again. Many factors, such as housing stability and poverty, can affect one’s health. Systemic racism also negatively affects the social and economic conditions necessary for people to be healthy in our communities.

Recently, the Olmsted County Board of Commissioners accepted the final recommendations from a joint study of race and racism as a public health issue, led by two of its advisory groups. Work will begin this fall to review the recommendations and develop an implementation plan.

Join us to hear from two volunteers who contributed to the recommendations and two Olmsted County staff who are a part of the county’s efforts. There will be time for questions. Bring a friend who wants to learn! The final report is available online at this link.

The program is free and open to the public, but please register using this link.

When registering, you will have the option to purchase a box lunch provided by Great Harvest. Sandwich choices are turkey, roast beef, or Harvest Veggies. Each lunch comes with a sandwich, chips, cookie, and bottle of water. You may either pay online with a credit card or mail a check to "LWV Rochester" at LWV Rochester, PO Box 6691, Rochester, MN 55903

Registration notes:

  • You will get a confirmation email saying you have tickets. There is no need to present a ticket when you arrive.
    Just stop at the registration table.

  • A confirmation email may take up to two hours to arrive. If it takes longer, check your junk email folder.

  • Registration is required to order a box lunch. Registration for only the program is recommended so we can be sure to have enough seating. We will do our best to accommodate walk-ins for the program.

  • If you have any problems registering or have any questions, email lwvrochester@lwvmn.org.
