Community Relations committee aims to educate


While the foundation’s Special Prospects, Annual Support and Employee Giving committees are focused on growing the number of supporters and donors to the foundation, the Community Relations committee has a different charge. 

Cliff Callis, Community Relations chair, said the committee’s goals are to create awareness of Bothwell services in the community and provide educational opportunities that share resources and support to people about health challenges they or their families are facing.

“Bothwell has experts that can speak about most any health topic from A to Z,” Callis said. “We also have a community that wants more information about how to physically and emotionally care for themselves and their loved ones in a healthy way. Our committee’s job is to help make our community aware of the outstanding health services and care that Bothwell provides.”

In November, the committee hosted its first free community seminar for parents and youth leaders on how to identify and support young people experiencing stress. The committee is also organizing tours of the hospital and planning four educational seminars in 2023.
