Effective communication is the process of sending a message from a sender to a receiver in a way that is clear and easy to understand.
One of the first steps to improving your communication skills is to analyze how you speak. Common weaknesses during communication can include poor pronunciation, not being loud enough, or mumbling what you’re saying.
Once you have analyzed your speaking habits and worked on them to create improvement, then it’s important to look at how well you listen. Poor listening can also affect the quality of communication. Make sure to pay attention and listen carefully to the speaker so that the message they are trying to convey is clear.
In April 2009, a group of community stakeholders met to address the needs of the uninsured residents of Cumberland County. Their commitment to our needs led them to form what is now, Cumberland HealthNET (CHN). CHN is a collaborative network of community organizations whose primary focus is to improve the health outcomes for the uninsured in Cumberland County by linking them with a medical home, as well as other needed health and community services.
Through its collaboration with seventeen other county and community organizations, Cumberland HealthNET seeks to improve access to care for the uninsured, improve coordination of services, provide needs assessments, identity overlaps and gaps in the services provided, provide community education and resources, advocate on behalf of the uninsured, and leverage and develop outside financial resources to support the work in Cumberland County through the following programs: Health Information, Well-Being Information, Housing & Homelessness Services, Insurance Information including qualification information, ACA Insurance, and CHN Insurance, COVID-19 Vaccination Program, Our Health Clinic, help with finding a medical professional, case management, prescription assistance, mental health assistance and nutrition information.
Give us a call or send us a message. We’ll set up a time to meet so we can learn more about you and your needs.
