Spotlight on Public Health Transportation Aides
The Transportation Aides are truly a driving force for the services provided to clients of our various programs here at the Forsyth County Department of Public Health. Our three transportation team members are Derrick Allen, Tanishia Rowland, and Debbie Hutton. Though their length of service with Forsyth County ranges from one year to several years, each of the TAs make significant contributions to the department and our community that go beyond just driving a van. Derrick is a great mentor and sounding board for our teen program participants, Tanishia is a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, and Debbie has received training in the Smart Girls Life Skills® curriculum. Day in and day out, they accomplish their mission of being a source of safe and reliable transportation to and from medical and related appointments for our clients and program participants.
If you happen to see them, please give them a shout out for all they do!

The QI Council knows that many of us are so busy in our own service areas, we don't always know about the great things that are happening across the health department. The Monthly Highlights are a way to bridge this gap and we hope to better connect all of our staff.
We need your help with stories to share each month in the Monthly Highlights. Anyone can submit something to be shared! You can send anything from a wedding or new baby announcement to an exciting event that happened in your department.
Email Holley Hooks at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your announcements included in next month's Highlights.
