This post is for my readers in and near Monroe, Mich.:

The Monroe County Health Department is hosting Wednesday Brown Bag Series that started this week and will meet from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesdays until March 14 at its facility, 2353 S. Custer Rd., Monroe, Mich.

The program each week is a 30-minute video, followed by a group discussion, focusing on racial and socioeconomic inequities in health, and public health policy “through a social justice and health equity lens.”

The Feb. 29 topic is of particular interest to Monroe on a Budget readers. The presentation is: Not Just a Paycheck – Unemployment takes a toll in Michigan, but not in Sweden.

The series is open to the public and is a “bring your own lunch” setting.

For information or reservations, call (734) 240-7839.
