Since receiving the support of its five member county boards in spring 2014, all activities have been focused on moving Horizon Community Health Board toward full integration in January 2015. This session will highlight why and how Horizon embarked on a three-year journey to integrate its three public health departments into a single public health department. Presenters will share their experiences and their "a-ha" moments, as well as their words of wisdom for others interested in organizational change, governance change, and less formal options for doing more cross-jurisdictional sharing.

Presenters: Sharon Braaten, Horizon CHB and Pope Co. Public Health; Todd Schneeberger, Grant Co. Commissioner; Sandy Tubbs, Horizon CHB and Stevens-Traverse-Grant Public Health
