Partnering to Address the West Valley’s Greatest Health Needs
Thursday, December 10, 2020 from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
As a business, civic, community, health or nonprofit leader in the West Valley, we all should be inspired to be an advocate for the health and wellness of our community. Sun Health invites you to a virtual and interactive discussion on the following health need areas:
- Chronic Disease
- Access to Care
- Mental Health
Three of these important topics were first presented at Sun Health’s Community Leaders Forum on February 13, 2020 at the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale. Together, we viewed results from health needs assessments conducted by Maricopa County Department of Public Health, the City of Surprise, several area healthcare systems and key health experts. Breakout groups formed around each health need and participants prioritized an area to work on together.
The vital work of these groups has been delayed by COVID and these needs have become even more acute as a result of the pandemic. In addition, mental health gaps have become more pronounced in recent months so this topic has been added as a fourth area of discussion.
During this action-packed 90-minute virtual session on December 10th, we need to be a voice for our community and identify how our organizations can work together to have a positive impact. We will hear from representatives of Maricopa County Department of Public Health with new population and epidemiological data specific to the West Valley. We will then breakout into the four discussion groups around each topic area.
We encourage your organization to bring its expertise to any topic area(s) that are germane to your work. Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who may be interested.
