The Garrett County Health Department, in collaboration with Garrett County Government, Garrett County Community Action, Garrett Trails, Garrett Regional Medical Center, Mountain Laurel Medical Center, Garrett County Community Aquatic and Recreation Complex, and Garrett County Public Schools, extends an open invitation for Garrett County businesses to attend the “Networking Breakfast” on February 20, 2018, in the Crawford Room at Wisp Resort 296 Marsh Hill Road, McHenry, from 8-9 a.m. for an informative discussion, designed to  generate ideas and explore ways to utilize the Culture of Health Prize awarded to our entire county.

The “Networking Breakfast” is the second event sponsored by the funds received from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 2017 Culture of Health Prize awarded to Garrett County for its collaborative work in addressing the social determinants of health through programs and systems developments such as 2-G, the Garrett County Planning Tool (, and integrated services designed to improve health indicators for Garrett County residents.

“This event is the collective design of numerous agencies, businesses, and organizations working cohesively to embrace the spirit of the Culture of Health Prize, and bring about sustained collaborative work with traditional and nontraditional stakeholders alike to better understand the opportunities afforded to our county through this distinguished recognition,” said Kevin Null, Garrett County Administrator.  

Breakfast will be available for the first fifty attendees beginning promptly at 8:00 a.m. Monica H. Vinluan, JD, Senior Program Officer for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will be kicking off the event followed by a panel of local leaders explaining how they are specifically using the Culture of Health Prize to foster continued opportunities to improve lives in Garrett County.  We are now part of an extended network of prize communities that embody innovative practices to improve population health, and have access to a wide range of resources that are available to assist our community with opportunities to work across sectors to learn from people in communities across the Nation. Funding opportunities and ways to share our good work abound. Please join us and learn what this means for you as an invested business in Garrett County.
