On April 11, 2014, 22 leaders and providers from social service organizations, such as the Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Central Ohio Transit Authority, Catholic Social Services and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank met with Task Force Staff members.
The providers discussed transportation, care coordination and mentor and support services.
This was the fifth 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.
