Are you or your organization interested in joining the more than 200 stakeholders already dedicated to the WHI’s mission of improving the health of low-income, uninsured, and underinsured populations across Washtenaw County? In a renewed commitment to our mission we ask our community stakeholders consider signing our Member Statement of Commitment.
What is the Member Statement of Commitment?
The Member Statement of Commitment outlines the mission of the WHI, its 4 main priority areas that guide our work, and the role the WHI undertakes in these areas. The key underlying principle of the WHI is founded on being a voluntary, county-wide collaboration of local leaders and organizations working to improve health, health equity, and health care across Washtenaw County. In doing so, we invite these partners to acknowledge the importance of this work by pledging to collaborate and support in developing and implementing solutions that will improve health, health equity, and health care across the county.
You can learn more about the WHI and its operating principles here.
What are the benefits of becoming a charter member?
The WHI provides a collaborative space to collectively address the most pressing health related issues locally in Washtenaw County. Charter member organizations are able to leverage the WHI in many ways:
- provide input on the goals and direction of our work together,
- use the WHI as a resource to advance initiatives or problem-solve concerns,
- communicate regularly with other Charter Members working to improve health,
- review a steady stream of information about current and emerging health trends and priorities, and
- share mission-relevant news with other Charter Members through the WHI’s communications vehicles.
How do you become/renew your status as a Charter Member?
Start by filling out the form linked here! Once you provide us the necessary contact information, WHI staff will reach out to you with further instructions. For new members, we will also be reaching out to schedule time to give you more information about the WHI and its work.
Please pay special attention to the list of organizational representatives at the bottom of the form. As a part of the 2022-26 signing process, the WHI Communication team wants to ensure our stakeholder contact list is up to date.
