On March 23, 2017, the Capital Area Health Alliance celebrated its 24th anniversary and commitment to enhancing the health of the Tri-County community. The Annual Meeting is the high point of our year and draws attention to the many dedicated people and organizations who give their time and resources to make CAHA’s work successful, highlights opportunities for collaboration, and looks to future strategies, initiatives, and needs. Over 135 health care professionals and community leaders representing organizations throughout the Capital Area gathered to celebrate the work of the Alliance and its partners.
The event started with a Committee Showcase, displaying the goals and activities of the Alliance’s committees. CAHA is powered by the many organizations and individuals who devote their energy to actively engage in committee strategies. The five committees of the Alliance are the: Capital Area Community Nursing Network, Capital Area Physicians Experience, Healthcare Workforce Committee, Healthy Lifestyles Committee, and Mental Health Partnership Council.
