A native of Western North Carolina, Bailey is the executive director of the Nantahala Health Foundation and will be the guest speaker at the Council for Collaborative Impact (CCI) quarterly breakfast meeting, Thursday, November 10, 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Hinton Rural Life Center in Hayesville.


“We’re excited to have Lori Bailey as our speaker at CCI,” said Jim Rich, community connections coordinator at Hinton Center. “Hinton partners with Nantahala Health Foundation, and their programs support our service area of Clay, Cherokee, and Towns counties. This is a great opportunity for folks who want to learn about what Nantahala Health does and how they’re working to invest in and work with community organizations, like

Hinton. They’re working with us and other nonprofit and government agencies to address issues that impact the health and well-being of all the residents in our area.”


At the meeting, regional updates will also be shared for CCI’s five focus areas of housing, substance use and mental health, technology, transportation, and children’s needs. A primary goal of CCI is to share information and encourage networking and collaboration among those serving in and/or interested in these focus areas. If you live or work in the region and want to learn more about these areas, as well as how you can get involved, you are encouraged to attend.


All are invited. Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 8, to Jim Rich at Hinton Center by calling 828-389-8336 or email him at jim@hintoncenter.org . There is no charge for this event.
