World Cafe takes place Wednesday

CLEARLAKE Childhood obesity is a national epidemic. One in three children in California is overweight or at risk for being overweight. We can turn this around by coming together in community focus groups, called "World Cafés," to share ideas and make recommendations for programs throughout Lake County.

Sutter Lakeside Hospital and the Health Leadership Network (HLN) are inviting all interested community members to a series of "World Cafés" to do just that.

The Health Leadership Network, a network of Lake County service provider agencies, has received a grant from the California Endowment to develop countywide obesity prevention programs.

Partners in this project include our school systems, hospitals and clinics, physicians, public health, early childhood development agencies, food and agricultural programs, and concerned citizens.

The first World Café will be conducted in Clearlake at the Clearlake Senior Center on Wednesday, May 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. If you live in Clearlake, Clearlake Park or Lower Lake, please join us for a fun evening. Refreshments will be served. Seating is limited so please call and reserve your space.
