Since 2011, young professionals with a passion for the Mid-South have served as community advocates for Regional One Health, bringing new ideas and perspectives.
This group of young volunteers began by hosting a series of informal social events to raise money for the hospital. This initiative grew and eventually led to the creation of Regional One Health Foundation’s Young Leadership Board, founded in 2015 by Erica Evans, Emily Gray and Patrick Hendricks.
The Young Leadership Board works to raise awareness about Regional One Health’s services, engages a younger generation through philanthropy and networks with other leaders through young leadership events.
This group of philanthropists raised over $10,500 to support hospital-based community outreach efforts aimed at decreasing HIV/AIDS and infant mortality. The board is currently working to raise funds for the rehabilitation center.
