Update, 10/13/10:The location for next week’s meeting has been set: We will meet at the Greater Frenchtown Revitalization Council, 421 W Georgia St. Thanks to Miaisha Mitchell for hosting.

Hold the date for the next regular HEAT meeting: October 19, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The location for the meeting has yet to be determined — if you are interested in hosting the meeting, please drop us a line.

We invite your input in crafting the agenda for the October meeting. After the summer break, our plan is to focus discussion on what we have accomplished to date and where we need to go next. In particular, we’d like to take stock of our work on Unnatural Causes and two HEAT spinoffs—the Food Policy Council and HEAT Heart Health—that are moving ahead with success. How can HEAT best support and integrate these projects? What are the priorities for future work? How can we ensure the sustainability of our efforts? What benchmarks should we use to gauge our success in promoting health equity?

Our work will succeed or fail by the strength of our partnerships, so please hold the date and stay tuned for more information about the meeting location. Come make your voice heard.
