San Juan Regional Medical Center invites you to join them at the Farmington Museum Thursday, June 15th from 4:00 to 5:30 pm to hear the results of the community health needs assessment survey and provide comments and feedback. The health needs assessment is done every three years to better understand the community's needs and if they are being met. The 2023 assessment was conducted in March and April and used county-level and census data alongside customized local health surveys. The goal is to determine the top needs of the community and what needs to be addressed first. Once the needs are prioritized, San Juan Regional Medical Center will create a task force to address the needs with actionable steps. Make sure to RSVP to Roberta Rogers if you intend to attend. Come join the City of Farmington to celebrate the many ways we play in San Juan County this weekend! Head to the Farmington Museum and Visitor Center this Saturday, June 10th, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to see all the different ways to jolt your summer fun. There will be a variety of booths and exhibitions, including a disc golf putting course, and you can't miss Zook the T Rex, an eight-foot-tall and 20-foot-long dinosaur that will be roaming the event! There will also be a number of presentations beginning at 10:30 am covering a variety of outdoor activities, resources, safety, and more. With live music and food, its an event for the whole family!
