ALLIANCE MEMBER SPOTLIGHTS

On behalf of the entire Alliance, thank you for your work and dedication to improving the health and well-being of Chatham County!

Program Manager for Community Health, UNC Health Alliance

Chatham Health Alliance Member, Chatham Food Hub Coordinator

Eleanor Wertman and her Community Health team work to address the non-clinical barriers (often referred to as social determinants of health) that prevent patients and communities from achieving their best possible health. Her team provides resource coordination assistance, transportation services, and mobile COVID testing and vaccination services across multiple counties. From April through October of 2020, Eleanor founded and led the Chatham Food Hub, a collaborative effort to increase sales for local businesses while also providing food to low-income Chatham County residents.

 

“Working in healthcare, it can often be difficult to collaborate directly with the many nonclinical groups that are also focused on health promotion. However, we must foster strong community partnerships to deliver better, more patient-centered care and improve health at both the individual and community levels. I am grateful to be a part of the Chatham Health Alliance so I can better understand the strengths, priorities, and needs of the patients and communities we serve (and, hopefully, offer some transparency into the inner workings of our healthcare system!).” -Eleanor Wertman

“What an awesome opportunity it has been to work with the Chatham County Health Alliance! Not only have I gotten to know some of Chatham’s most cool and impactful community leaders but this experience has allowed me to work on empowering youth in collaboration with other amazing organizations. The Health Alliance is a space that has allowed me to work towards youth empowerment and promote equity and social justice through the creation of the Youth Council. “ - Selina Lopez
