LeeCAN’s ability to make a change begins with your involvement!
Lee County residents can help LeeCAN with the overall goal of improving the health and well-being of all community residents by identifying the important health and safety concerns of the community.
Lee County residents can also help define and carry out solutions to these concerns along with other community residents, civic leaders, healthcare providers, city and county officials, religious leaders, and business owners.
Currently, LeeCAN is working to reduce the teen pregnancy rate, educate and inform the community about mental health and mental health services that are available, and reduce the number of Lee County residents who are obese. The subcommittees meet monthly.
You can contact Marisa Ramos-Mason, the coordinator, @ firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 718-4640 Ext 5356.
Currently, the subcommittees meet monthly and the full partnership meets at least once a quarter on a third Wednesday of a month beginning at 4pm at the Government Center 106 Hillcrest Dr Sanford NC, 27330.
