A new Lincoln County citizens’ advisory committee that is helping to assess the health care needs and concerns of Lincoln County residents meets again on Wednesday (June 5) in Newport.
The Lincoln County Coordinated Health Care Advisory Committee will meet from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Conference Room 207 at the Lincoln County Health and Human Services Department’s temporary administrative headquarters in the Western Title Building, 255 SW Coast Hwy, in Newport.
The local committee, officially formed in early May will work closely with the regional Community Advisory Council of the InterCommunity Health Network Coordinated Care Organization and with the local Lincoln County Community Health Assessment Steering Group. The primary focus of the new committee is the health care needs and concerns of Lincoln County residents who are covered under the Oregon Health Plan and the regional Coordinated Care Organization.
Membership on the committee remains open and new members will be chosen by the committee. The committee is especially interested in recruiting more members who are OHP members. All meetings of the committee are open to the public and public input is eagerly sought. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or 541-272-4615.
