Lions hear details about MO SWITCH
Shawn Hayden, chief executive officer for Missouri Southwest Initiative to Change Health (MO SWITCH), shared detailed information about his role as a grant writer when he addressed the Monett Lions Club members.
Hayden described how he labors to secure funding and works to deliver services to improve the health of area residents. Identification of those individuals in need of health care assistance is paramount for preventive healthcare and for the treatment of those individuals experiencing ongoing needs, he said.
Monett Lions are deeply involved in the promotion of a healthier community, as is evidenced by their historic involvement in sight related issues, their expanding support of diabetes identification and education, and their latest venture of providing assistance to the hearing impaired.
Hayden works on health issues for Cox Monett Hospital, and managed the community outreach for the grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health through Cox Monett.
