Our History

The Health Leaders Council formerly known as the Partnership Committee, was founded in 2017. Seventeen members met monthly to champion a shared vision and mission and unique opportunities by enhancing understanding of the connections within the community, facilitating the engagement of citizens and organizations to get involved with AAHBC and identifying opportunities to leverage community/partnership capabilities and initiatives through the unique opportunities for community-based coordination, synergies and innovation in service delivery models

The Health Council has since evolved, twenty-four community citizens representing organizations continue to provide linkages and accountability to the community. This council operates as an advisory committee providing thought leadership, input, feedback, and contributions to the connectivity of health efforts, services, and systems to help implement strategies and develop initiatives advancing our future as a healthy community. These citizens and organizations are champions at informing, innovating, integrating impact-focused community messages.
