Cone Health Foundation of Greensboro invites those with an interest in local health care to take part in the development of a white paper:
“The Foundation has commissioned a White Paper on Access to Care. As a part of this process we are going to have a charrette in February to map out the current status of the issue in our community, to comprehensively identify and define the gaps and finally to look at recommendations for increasing access to care in the greater Greensboro community. While we are all aware that the cost and logistical problems involved in visiting the doctor are the main deterrents for people who need to see a physician, there are multiple factors impacting access that must be addressed. …
“A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, designers and others collaborate on a vision. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the decision makers. More importantly, it allows everyone who participates to be a mutual author of the plan. Please join us as we work to increase access to care for the vulnerable populations (the youngest, oldest, sickest and poorest) in our community.”
The charrette will be held on Tuesday February 21, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Education Center of The Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, 801 Green Valley Drive. For more information, contact Antonia Monk Reaves, vice president and senior program officer, at 336 832-9555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
