Why we’re doing it: To help meet the clinical and social needs of the underserved patient population in Bell County by building connections between the people who make referrals and the organizations providing those services. Mid-morning the entire group will be participating in a Case Study exercise. Participants will be grouped together and given 1 of 12 real-lifeclient scenarios. Group members will work together to locate, meet, and strategize with local agencies, that they can refer their client to for help. Vendors will be on hand to share the multitude of services  from basic needs to veterans support that are available to help meet these vital needs of our community. We are excited to announce Community Health Summit: Connecting the Dots 3.0 opening remarks will be shared by Cliff Fullerton, MD, MSc President, Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance and our featured guest speaker is Jeremy Everett, founder and executive director of the Texas Hunger Initiative (THI), a capacity-building, anti-hunger project within Baylor University.
