PECaD recently held two town hall meetings in north St. Louis County to give the public a chance to discuss their hopes, concerns, and questions with Washington University physicians and researchers at Siteman regarding the new facility under construction at Christian Hospital’s Northwest HealthCare campus (anticipated to open in early November). More than 25 people participated in these meetings, where they asked questions and learned about the services to be provided at the new facility and the way in which Siteman intends to promote cancer prevention in the community. Another north county town hall is being planned to coincide with the grand opening of the new Siteman facility, with further events to be held on a regular basis.
After our East St. Louis Smart Health event in August, we will hold two town hall meetings in that area to learn more about the needs and concerns of residents. Check our Facebook group or look for an email soon with a flyer containing information about how you can attend these events. For more information on what was discussed at the previous town halls, please email PECaD@wustl.edu for a report.
