As part of the public health modernization program, the Southwest Region Healthcare Coalition (SWRHC) was formed. An advisory group was formed to provide advise to the program leadership team regarding the direction of the SWRHC, other projects that may be undertaken, and the possibility of other collaborations across the region. Members of the advisory group are the program coordinator, the program epidemiologist, the public health administrators for Coos, Curry, and Douglas Counties, representatives from the Coquille and Cow Creek Indian tribes, and representatives for the Community Care Organizations (CCOs) operating in each county. This group meets quarterly at the Bandon Community Health Center in Bandon, Oregon.
The next meeting of the SWRHC Advisory Group has been postponed, and will take place in December, date TBA. The meeting agenda will be posted prior to the meeting.
