To better serve the Southeast Missouri region, the Scott County Health Department is teaming up with other health departments across the heartland to improve and further develop M Power, a nonprofit regional initiative dedicated to helping those in the area affected by chronic disease. Scott County is currently registering individuals for focus groups in which they can share their opinions regarding health education services available at the health department. Those who participate will receive a $25 gift card in addition to a free meal during the focus group session. Those interested in helping the health department can contact BOLD Marketing at 573-803-0676 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Participants must be at least 25 years of age and a U.S. citizen. The focus group meeting will last around one hour. To receive a gift card, participants must remain involved throughout the full discussion time. Those who participate will also need to have an address within Scott County.
