Melissa Marconi Wentzel discusses the Sitka Health Summit’s upcoming Visioning Session. The Health Summit is launching a comprehensive community health assessment through the MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) program. To launch that effort, the health visioning session will ask participants to imagine where they’d like to see Sitka in five years, taking into account everything from public health to arts and culture, housing and transportation, access to healthy food and health behaviors.
