Coalition to meet Jan. 27

Because of lack of funding, the Wellness Coalition has announced it can no longer pay a coordinator. Organizers said Chuck Whalen, the former coordinator, has done a nice job keeping the group’s action teams on track and bringing new volunteers and ideas to the group.

The Polk Wellness Coalition will hold a strategic planning session Thursday, Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m at the Polk County Library.

Dan Raischel, director with Carolinas HealthCare Management Company, will lead the session. He recently helped the coalition’s board come to consensus on a five-year plan for St. Luke’s Hospital.

Drinks and snacks will be available but participants should feel free to bring your preferred lunch or snacks.

RSVP to Mary Smith at msmith@rpmhd.org. Members of the board of commissioners have also been invited.
