Thanks to all who turned came to the June 26th meeting for our Health Improvement Alliance of St. Joseph County education session on Health First Indiana/SB4. About 90 people turned out to learn about the advantages of this new legislation.

We were so lucky to have, as our speakers, Chris Karam, president, St. Joseph Health System; Kreg Gruber, chief executive officer, Beacon Health System; Rose Meissner, president, Community Foundation of SJC,  and Trina Robinson, President of the South Bend NAACP. They unanimously endorsed opting in to the new funds Health First Indiana will bring to public health initiatives. Our thanks to all of them

Here is a link to the slides that were shared at the meeting.

Here is a summary of the meeting.

Good NEWS!
