Creating A Healthier Society

Local leaders gathered in Greenville Thursday to discuss ways of improving healthcare in Eastern North Carolina. The goal of the forum was to get business, educational, political and medical leaders together with the idea that the success of any one of those areas impacts the success of all of them. Organizers say without a healthy population, education and business development won't be as productive. The event was part of a series of forums presented by the institute for emerging issues.
