On February 21, 2014, 33 public health practitioners, program leaders and social service organization executives from across Franklin County participated in the first targeted stakeholder workshop supporting the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force’s community engagement.
Held at Broad Street Presbyterian Church, members of the Community Health Coordination Project, an initiative to improve collaboration and communication between city and county organizations working on health care issues, participated in a facilitated discussion on infant mortality.
This was the first of 10 targeted stakeholder workshops that will be held in conjunction with the work of the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force. The workshops are designed to seek input from those of you who are already tackling at least one piece of this large issue.
Specifically, the group was asked to provide feedback and insights on what is already happening in the community that are successful, efforts that are gaining traction and are points of pride for the community, barriers to improving the community’s infant mortality rate and what they would like the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force members to know.
