Since the April 29th meeting of The Group, several important steps have been taken towards our goal of developing a regional community health needs assessment in eastern North Carolina. On June 12th, the Steering Committee held their first meeting. Many topics were discussed including how decisions should be made for The Group, possibly expanding the Steering Committee, and better defining the mission and goals of The Group.
In addition, one of the main goals of the Steering Committee meeting was to identify possible individuals to serve on the three work groups that were decided upon in April. Once set, the work groups will start to meet in July and through August to review and complete their assigned tasks. It is the goal of the Steering Committee to reconvene The Group in mid-September or early October to give the work groups the opportunity to report findings.
