Josh Callihan, Vice-Chairman for the Knox County Health Coalition, encouraged the health coalition at Tuesday’s meeting, “We are going to find a way to carry on. We need to find some new leadership. I have picked up more responsibilities with my current jobs and feel a little unqualified as it is. I will be able to remain as Vice-Chair for a little longer, until we can get the chair and vice-chair filled.”

Rebecca Raines, the new Head of the Knox County Health Department, offered a possible solution. “We have a job posted, Health Educator with the Health Department (applications can be picked up at the Health Department, but have to be submitted by Friday, Feb. 27). Perhaps when this position is filled, that person will be able to offer assistance in this area. I am certain that whoever fills the position will need at least 60 days of orientation prior to helping outside of the department.”
