Franciscan Health held its first Lake County, IN Resilience Coalition Meeting on Thursday, October 29th. The coalition meeting consisted of discussion around Franciscan’s most recent Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and the four, top health needs within the community: infant mortality, adult mental health, uninsured & under-insured persons, and child abuse and neglect. All topics highlighting Franciscan’s foundational focus of the healing of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
The meeting was a great success, as 20 members of the community joined us! We look forward to working together with external and internal partners to determine future goals focused on creating a resilient Lake County. Together we will create the roadmap of what this coalition will look like as we move forward. We look forward to always adding new members so if you, your organization, or someone you know would like to join future meetings, please feel free to reach out to me at Kathleen.firstname.lastname@example.org or my colleague Chayni.email@example.com!
We look forward to collaborating with one another to help heal our Lake County communities and the surrounding areas!
