We added information for the hiring process and budget impacts. If there are other ideas/speakers you would like to see, please add them to the link above.
We will be reaching out to the CDC and Maricopa County to see about having a “guest speaker” for the roundtable.
We will plan to meet weekly on Tuesdays at 9:30am unless potential speakers need a different time/schedule.
