    Hi, thank you for the community conversation last week. I am interested in whether Central Health will be providing funding support for the African American's Men's Health Clinic. Thank-you.

    Good morning, Ivan. Following up on last Thursday's presentation of Central Health's budget, I'd like to follow up to provide input -- I will email you a business case summary that has been drafted for the African American Men's Health Clinic and Wraparound Service Model to get the input going. Please know that I am in support of this summary request, as Black men experience the greatest disparities in health of all groups in Central Texas and beyond, and we have yet to see a model specifically designed toward and/or effectively achieving positive outcomes for this group. This is a historical imbalance, created by racist practice and inequity over time for this most vulnerable population, which clearly our policies, practices, and approaches thus far have been unable to resolve. Coming from a Community Based Participatory Approach, which is research based, was well as my lived experience as a Black individual/family and extensive experience in working to support black-led initiatives, businesses, and community-serving strategies in Central Texas now for 28 years, it is more clear to me than ever that our current systems leaders CANNOT develop effective solutions that do not come from the Black community. It is time for Central Health to embrace the approach of supporting a strategic initiative coming from the Black community and, as an equity measure, doing so because it makes sense and adapting its policy and procedure as necessary to achieve in-common priorities of equity and reaching the most adversely impacted, vulnerable populations. There are some business strategic planning best practices that come into play here as well, which I'd like to share with you and/or the group that will be at the Public Hearing on September 2nd -- my business background consists of a Master's in Business Administration, Public Relations, and a long, successful history of assisting businesses and public systems that are looking to support equity strategies and achieve measurable, tangible results in doing so. We are hoping for a St. David's Foundation grant to complete a full business plan that will bring clarity to these strategies and our recommended approach, but in the meantime, we have enough to strongly recommend that Central Health include some 2022 budgeted funds to support the launch of this initiative.

    Greetings Board Members. My name is Maria Emerson, member of the Texas Anti-Poverty Project (TAPP). For years others and I have requested funding for Capital Idea, a job training program for the working poor. Capital Idea pays for tuition, books, uniforms, child care and transportation. For years we have had a shortage of nurses and now due to the pandemic the urgency has increased tremendously. Please include in the budget Community Care funding for the training of nurses. $300,000 for Capital Idea through Community Care will allow job training for nurses some from the communities that receive services from Central Health. Please empower the working poor to improve their lives and provide a much needed service. We will all benefit from this investment. Thank you.
