The Knox Clinic invites the community to join a virtual presentation on Tuesday, July 19 to learn the results collected from its recent Barriers to Care Survey. In addition, Executive Director Meredith Batley will discuss new efforts by the organization that could dramatically impact access to affordable care for the communities.
The online program will be presented at both 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on July 19. Those interested in attending may sign up at https://forms.gle/vagpEV6BDk9wTx9i7 for either the 2 p.m. program or the 7 p.m. program, or you may register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will receive a Zoom link by email. The presentation will last 30-35 minutes, with time for questions at the end.
A total of 537 area residents from 14 local zip codes responded to the Barriers to Care Survey, giving a critical local perspective on care in the region. What prevents someone from obtaining care? What care is most needed? Are there other factors like abuse or homelessness that make it harder to get medical, dental or mental health care? The responses have helped the Knox Clinic define its areas of focus in the years to come.
“We’ll share the survey results and next steps with you on July 19,” said the Knox Clinic, in a news release. “Everyone is welcome! We hope you can join us!”
