COMMUNITY EDUCATION
During the coming months, sponsors of the Lincoln Vital Signs report are focusing on communicating the results to the community through community-wide events, presentations to various community groups, media releases, and email newsletters. Click here to read about our recent activities.

As we’ve presented the results of Lincoln Vital Signs this past year, people have asked for a tool to spur brainstorming. We have developed a worksheet to guide discussions about possible action steps. We are calling this The Lincoln Circle. Feel free to use and adapt as it fits your needs. If you would like to share the results of your group’s brainstorming, please contact Sarah Peetz.
