Health coalitions, business leaders, health providers and elected officials working to improve health in the Northern Kentucky area will participate a Regional Community Health Forum in Erlanger on Nov. 15. The exchange is hosted by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky in partnership with the Northern Kentucky Health Department. The 90-minute morning forum is free; it will include information on efforts to address teen e-cigarette use, or "vaping," an update on vaping-related lung illnesses in Kentucky, and the latest developments regarding proposed changes to Kentucky's Medicaid program. There also will be an opportunity for attendees to share their thoughts and ask questions about health policy issues.

The event is free to attend, but registration is required. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/regional-community-health-forum-tickets-72540872703.
