LARAMIE -- The Wyoming Department of Health invites local clients, providers, and residents to share their thoughts and ideas on health-related issues and needs during structured listening sessions in Laramie and Casper.

The Laramie event will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 30, at the Albany County Library, located at 310 S. 8th Street.

The Casper event will be from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at Casper College in Strausner Hall Room 217, located at 125 College Drive.

“These sessions are opportunities for us to hear from our department’s clients, local healthcare providers and community members about health-related issues,” said Michael Ceballos, WDH director.

“We want to know what’s working and what could be improved. A better understanding of local perspectives will help us make the most of our available resources to continue improving services and overall health in the state,” he said.

The department expects to continue scheduling similar listening sessions in other Wyoming communities over the coming months.

Local residents who may be especially interested in attending include:

  • Clients of various WDH programs
  • Local area healthcare providers
  • Coalition members
  • Anyone interested in Wyoming healthcare issues
