Processed with VSCOcamMore than 70 staff members from Healthy Start programs at eight different agencies in the region came together Monday, March 23 for a day of training, team-building activities, mindfulness exercise and fun. The training was arranged by Coalition staff to allow all eight agencies to come together in one place. The workshop covered care coordination-specific topics like documenting risk factors, risk-appropriate care, a data review and enhanced services available. But it also brought together staff to share best practices and enjoy themselves — several staff put on a Healthy Start skit for the audience.
