As part of the "Systems in Sync" grant for Kansas' youth with special health care needs, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) will host regional town hall meetings in February. The purpose of the meetings is to gather feedback on the needs of youth with special health care needs, their families, and the professionals who work in the field, as well as provide information about the grant project.
Information gathered during the town hall meetings will provide project staff with decision tools to guide the grant project and important feedback for our state about the needs of each community.
Town Hall Meeting Schedule
All meetings begin at 5:30 p.m.
February 8 - Garden City, Center for Independent Living, 1802 E. Spruce St.
February 9 - Liberal, Liberal Memorial Library, 519 N. Kansas
"Systems in Sync" is a three-year grant awarded to KDHE's Children and Youth Special Health Care Needs in partnership with the University of Kansas Center on Developmental Disabilities. The objective of the grant is to ensure that Kansas' youth with special health care needs and their families receive culturally competent, uninterrupted, age-appropriate services that meet their needs and promote healthy, productive and independent adult lives.
For more information on the meetings, or if accommodations or translation services are needed to attend, please contact Heather Moore, Project Coordinator, at 785-296-4747 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
