07.01.15_Regional Meeting dw_001[1] copy

This is an opportunity for you to:
· Strengthen existing relationships
· Establish new partnerships
· Learn about available resources and potential referrals
· Meet local health leaders
· Improve community health outcomes
· Share qualitative and quantitative data

We are seeking accreditation from the National Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). This national accreditation will provide our health departments the ability to improve quality, access, services, value, and accountability to stake holders within the communities we serve.

A pre-requisite to the accreditation process requires us to complete community health assessments. This meeting is the first of many to collaborate and share our findings with our community partners on a regional level. The meeting provides a venue to form new relationships and/or strengthen existing partnerships with a variety of human services organizations that serve the District 4 Public Health Community.

Attendees to this FREE event will have the opportunity to briefly share the latest and greatest information about their organizations in a casual and collaborative environment. Organizations include representatives from:

· Regional hospitals
· Regional health departments
· Regional Emergency Management Agencies
· Regional Emergency Medical Service Agencies
· Regional Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC’s)

We ask that each participant provide a short (3-5 minute) overview of the following topics:
· Community that you serve
· Geographic area where you serve
· Available resources/services provided
· Opportunities to partner

Lite bites and refreshments will be provided.

Attendance is limited. Please RSVP to allie.crawford@dph.ga.gov no later than June 15, 2015.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
