More than 100 community leaders gathered to discuss important issues impacting the quality of health and social determinants of health for Allentown residents during Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) inaugural Community Health Symposium. Keynote speakers included LVHN President and Chief Executive Officer Brian A. Nester, DO, MBA and Allentown Mayor Matthew Tuerk.
“At LVHN, we know that the health of the overall community is only as good as the least healthy segments of our community,” Nester says. “The symposium is an opportunity to learn from and support local and community partners about their insights into factors that influence health. Together, we will discuss solutions on how to improve some of the most pressing issues affecting our community’s health.”
