Dr. Anne Scheer and her team from the SIU School of Medicine's Department of Population Science & Policy have been working as consultants for YWCA, helping with community outreach efforts and drafting a comprehensive plan based on the findings and recommendations from the community.

YWCA is seeking feedback on this plan and has scheduled public meetings to gather input. The meetings are available in-person and virtually through Microsoft Teams to accommodate different preferences and schedules.

The upcoming public meetings provide a great opportunity for community members to share their thoughts and perspectives, ultimately influencing the implementation strategy and bringing meaningful change to the community.
