There are not many things that bring people together like food. Everyone has to have it, everyone gets hungry around the same time, and it is great to sit down with your friends to enjoy it.
So what better way to start celebrating National Health Center Week here at HealthNet than staff appreciation lunches throughout the week?
Yesterday, we had lunches for our staff at Southwest Health & Dental Center, Martindale-Brightwood Health & Dental Center, Better Indy Babies/Healthy Families Program, and our Electronic Medical Records team (a few pictures can be seen on our Facebook page).
The great thing about our staff lunches so far has been the presence of board members! It is great to see the involvement of not just staff taking time out for themselves, but our board members making a trip to see them and thank them for all that they do!
And, it wasn’t just all thanks either!
The interaction between Martindale-Brightwood’s Center Manager, René Kougel, and long-time community board member Elizabeth Gore, was highly informational. Their conversation ranged from environmental justice to immunizations for public school students, and was helpful for all staff to gain more insight into what is going on in the community around them.
We also had a visit from Betty Whitney, Betty Conner, and Bertha Leak (shown above) – three community board members for our Southwest Health & Dental Center. They always attend events whenever possible, and we could not be happier to have these three on our board!
National Health Center week is going well so far! More updates to come.
