State of the Lehigh Valley: Community Trends at a Glance
March 3, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am
Each year, the Lehigh Valley Research Consortium publishes the State of the Lehigh Valley: Community Trends at a Glance, a report that showcases consortial faculty research on the quality of life in the Lehigh Valley region. The report is released at an annual event each spring, which provides a venue for local business and community leaders to gather, listen to findings, and discuss opportunities for collaborative action.
This year’s State of the Lehigh Valley event took place on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 at DeSales University from 7:30am-11:30am.
This year, the report focused on issues affecting persons with disabilities in our region. We hope it will spark discussions about what we, as a community, are doing well and what steps we can take to improve the quality of life for all our neighbors. We’re also building on last year’s successful small group format to allow for in-depth conversations with the report authors and community partners.
