United Way of the Mid-South is heavily involved in a presentation on establishing and aligning with a city and county health care infrastructure that will be shared with representatives of United Way organizations across the globe later this week.
The 2012 United Way Worldwide Community Leaders Conference takes place this week in Nashville, TN. United Way volunteers and staff leaders from countries spanning the globe will assemble to share best practices and learn more about the United Way movement’s progress to improve education, income and health.
Regina Walker, United Way of the Mid-South’s Sr. V.P. of Community Engagement and Alignment, is among the key presenters in a session entitled “Aligning Health Care In Memphis.” Walker will share details about aligning United Way’s work with government, nonprofit, healthcare and other groups in building a civic infrastructure for positive health outcomes, and the role our United Way’s Catalyst Fund plays in that effort.
Additional presenters and/or partners of note are Debra Bartelli, DrPH (Healthy Shelby Project Director, Healthy Memphis Common Table); Scott Fountain (Sr. V.P. & Chief Development Officer, Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. and a local United Way Board member); Renee S. Frazier (CEO, Healthy Memphis Common Table); Stephen Reynolds (President and CEO, Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. and Chairman of the Memphis Tomorrow Executive Committee / also a former local United Way Board member); and Rev.
