Representatives with Central Health, members of Travis County Health and Human Services and Travis County Commissioner Jeffrey Travillion will talk about access to healthcare at the event, according to a March 28 news release.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Rock Gym at Pflugerville High School, 702 West Pecan Street.

Medical advancements

Pflugerville is making strides to expand medical services in the area.

In December 2018, Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Pflugerville opened its first hospital in Pflugerville. This came just before the opening of a fully-integrated clinic into the Pflugerville Medical Center in October 2018 which brought a dozen medical specialists and general practitioners.

Pflugerville also has a rising number of low income residents. Started in 2004, Central Health works to Travis County residents with access to high-quality care through eliminating health disparities.

The Community Conversation will discuss common healthcare obstacles for low income communities and will explore future service expansion and community planning efforts in Pflugerville.
