Yet, obstacles to

to purchase nutritious food regularly and lack of healthy food

options in the community – represent major challenges for some to

Sure! Great suggestion. I just joined today, so I'm still learning the lay of the land.

Thanks, Carol... as far as I can tell, that page only has one of the presentations from the webinar. I'd like to share the others with teammates here as a good overview, particularly the summary of the bill with info about the wellness grants program. I can also search around online, but if it was easy, that would help me time-wise. Thanks much.

Hi Carol,
it is. I'm well. How are you?
I actually thought of you yesterday because I was in a workshop with Ken Hardy. Have you ever heard him speak? He was pretty great, and would have been very relevant to our little fish bowl. Valerie would have enjoyed him.

Hello Carol. Could you please send me what you still have as the issue I raised and I can help add it as a comment or posting. What I was referring to was the PH-HVA (public health-hazard vulnerability assessment), rather than an HVAC (which I only know to mean "heating, ventilating and cooling" system. -- Michael
