HIA convenes on a monthly basis. This core group consists of the team leaders from each task force, leaders from both Bridgeport Hospital and St. Vincent’s Medical Center, health directors from the departments of health of Bridgeport, Fairfield, Milford, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford, and other decision makers from the other partner agencies including Optimus Healthcare, Southwest Community Health Center, AmeriCares Free Clinic of Bridgeport, LLC and many more.
HIA oversees four task forces which work to address the health priorities identified through the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). These task forces consist of representatives from partner organizations, plus others interested in improving the health of the community through collaboration. Each task force also meets on a monthly basis and works to ensure their specific Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) goals are met and progress is tracked.
All are welcome! The four HIA Task Forces meet regularly and all meetings are open to the public. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
