III. Yolo County Summit/Conference/Workshop - 2016

We have a lot of momentum so we need to have spring event, bring people together again and expand outreach.

Topic – Resilience, Wellness, network groups, Yolo HHS priorities - chronic disease, priority areas, elderly, homeless, etc.


Spring Event Subcommittee  – outline theme/goal, budget, date, location, target audience, narrow vs wide audience, etc. format. Possibly ask input from city and county level groups.

Julie, Lisa, Regan, Gail, - meet and report back at Nov meeting. After initial planning session send out ideas to group for input prior to next meeting.
