CASPER, WY - Local health experts met Wednesday to discuss healthcare needs in Wyoming's communities.
The meetings covered challenges and successes for Wyoming's population to be healthy.
The group listened for input from anyone so they can find ways to help Wyoming's residents.
It's a requirement to perform a needs assessment every 5 years, but experts say they need the time to discuss the communities’ priorities.
"Our current priorities are basically to decrease infant mortality, decrease obesity, prevent unintentional injuries, especially for children and adolescence," said Maternal and Child Health Linda Mcelwain.
The group also discussed maternal and child health, including needs for breast feeding support.
