CHHS Center for Healthy Communities Reconvenes with Local Health Directors and SEAHEC

On Nov. 17, the CHHS Center for Healthy Communities met with health directors from Brunswick, Columbus, Onslow, Pender and New Hanover counties, the director of continuing education at SEAHEC and CHHS Dean, Charles Hardy to reconvene the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Health Collaborative (SENCRHC).

SENCRHC is a collaborative partnership with CHHS and regional public health leadership and staff to improve individual and population/community health in Southeastern North Carolina through regional programs and interventions. 

The meeting included a review and discussion of the history of SENCRHC, an agreement to continue updating the history of the collaborative, a review of different strategic planning models and agreement to schedule a strategic planning retreat in February, 2018. In addition, new members were welcomed in the meeting.

“Reviewing the SENCRHC’s timeline and discussing the possibilities of the collaborative in the future created positive energy and excitement for 2018 and years to come,” Center for Healthy Communities Coordinator Leah Mayo said.

This was the first time the group had met since early 2017.
