South Eastman Health is pleased with the growing number of residents that are stepping forward and joining the board’s community advisory councils.
Monique Vielfaure McKenzie is pleased that board has added eighteen new members to the District Health Advisory Councils.
“We have a really good mix of seniors, working class and even high school students participating,” stated Vielfaure McKenzie. “This mix will be very helpful in getting an accurate picture of what communities want.
The Board of South Eastman Health relies on its community advisory committees because they are advocates at a community level.
Members of District Health Advisory Councils (DHACs) provide advice to the Board on appropriate health-related actions and services for their district. As well, DHAC members help the Board communicate its policies and activities to their communities. They can even initiate local projects that will focus on informing the community and promoting health of the district or regional population.
