Dogwood Health Trust
As part of our commitment to accountability within the communities we serve, Dogwood hosts an annual community meeting that is open to the public. This year’s meeting will be held online via Zoom webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 11:45 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
We’re pleased to welcome Casey Cooper, CEO of Cherokee Indian Hospital and a member of the Dogwood board, as our keynote speaker.
Also during the meeting, Mark Constantine, Dogwood’s Senior Vice President of Community Investment, will moderate a panel with the vice presidents for each of our strategic priorities. The panel discussion will include Dogwood’s plans for 2024 and the ways in which we will increasingly collaborate across our strategic priority areas of Housing, Education, Economic Opportunity and Health & Wellness.
You may register to join us live on October 18 from 11:45 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend during the virtual webinar, the 2023 Annual Community Meeting will be recorded and posted to Dogwood’s website. If you’d like to submit a question in advance, please take a moment to do so. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions during the meeting.
Across Western North Carolina, there are countless stories of individuals and organizations who have made significant positive changes in their communities. How did they recognize the possibility for change? How did they move change forward? What can we learn from them? Casey Cooper, CEO of Cherokee Indian Hospital, is one such leader, bringing his own passion, commitment and collaboration to a life’s work of creating better health outcomes for his Qualla Boundary community and all of WNC – work for which he was recently honored by Governor Roy Cooper with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine.
In his keynote address, Casey will share some of the stories that inspire him and the lessons he has learned along the way about how we can envision, embrace and pursue the possibility of a healthier and more robust Western North Carolina.
