Join us as we hear from Dr. Mona Fouad and the Birmingham REACH for Better Health and Beyond. Our group also has the exciting opportunity to experience a Health Equity Orientation presented by Lonnie Pressley of the Jefferson County Department of Public Health and Tracy Hipps from Christian Service Mission. Our one hour presentation and discussion will cover how improving health equity strengthens our community, reduces cost of medical conditions, and gives everyone an opportunity to thrive.

A thorough review of how the West Virginia plan was successfully developed, implemented, and disseminated was given by Dr. Elliot.
