Some exciting news to share with you. A recently formed group of five people began working to improve the health and wellbeing of our community. Our team, Western Kentucky, will be hosting an event on Saturday, May 28, 2022, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm (CDT) in partnership with the Russellville Urban Gardening Project. We are working with the Center for Global Health Innovation from Johns Hopkins University, the Rural Studies Institute (RSI), and the VAT Project to provide health education outreach about COVID-19 and vaccines and boosters. Additionally, the Logan County Health Department is exploring ways to collaborate with this event and we anticipate their presence, too.
The entire community is invited at no cost to them. We will be grilling and serving refreshments, sharing tips on gardening and nutrition, and learning about local residents’ experiences with COVID-19 and vaccines. There will be drawings for door prizes, too. We expect it to be a well-attended event and fun for all involved.
