BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Space Coast Health Foundation will host a community education forum on what’s at stake for Brevard County under scheduled funding cuts to health care providers serving low-income individuals, and options available to offset those cuts.
The forum will be held January 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Suntree Office Tower, located at 6905 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne.
Speakers include Joan Alker, Executive Director of the Center for Children and Families at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute; Charlotte Joseph Cassel of Florida Legal Services; and Miriam Harmatz of Florida Legal Services.
The Space Coast Health Foundation was established on October 1, 2010 using the proceeds from the sale of Wuesthoff Health System.
The foundation is a public charity working on collaborative projects that will meet the healthcare needs of our community. These needs are chosen by using focus groups, one-on-one interviews and quantitative research to determine specific community health needs.
The Foundation’ stated mission includes to routinely talk with the community to maintain a pulse on health and wellness needs; select not for profit partners who provide good business practices and are willing to be creative and inventive in their approach to enhancing health and wellness; and financially and operationally supporting partners who pursue the improvement of health and wellness.
