ISBM Update - July 2018

Key Highlights This Month:  

  • Hiring stakeholder engagement specialist with a county perspective: Connect with county staff across the state to promote innovation and align efforts on integrated services.  We need 2 half-time or 1 full-time staff that is ready for a new challenge, from a county that wants to influence the direction. Costs for current county staff will be reimbursed to the home county through Modernization funds with a DHS interchange agreement.  Look for more details soon.  Can’t wait? email bina.nikrin@hennepin.us.

Attend this forum to discuss:

  • Improvement of human services delivery through measuring social determinants of health.
