Community Workgroup

In addition to the Community Advisory Council, DOH convened a Community Workgroup to facilitate more avenues for community members to engage with the HEZ Initiative. The Community Workgroup will provide guidance to the Community Advisory Council on key decision points by ensuring the stories and knowledge of community members experiencing the greatest health inequities are centered in the HEZ Initiative development process. 

The Community Workgroup had open membership and met monthly. There was no formal commitment to participate on the Workgroup, but members were encouraged to engage to the best of their ability to provide input ahead of key decision points.
