Ever said, “Why didn’t we know that ____ was doing that?  We could have let our clients know!”  Or, “We need to offer _____ to our clients, but we don’t have the resources to do it.”  Ever thought, “With whom might we work together on _______?”

We have!  HealthFinders’ Community Engagement team is convening a resource-sharing and networking event on Thursday, June 28 and would like you to participate!  This event is for front-line staff and coordinators alike.  We will be using a fast-paced “world café” style that is engaging and collaborative way of sharing and spreading ideas. Think of it as a mix of speed-dating for community groups, followed by discussion and making connections.
