Health and job training were on the agenda of the first Chamber of Commerce meeting of 2017 held Tuesday, Jan. 10 at Lindsey Wilson College. Guest speakers Jelaine Harlow, Lake Cumberland District Health Department Health Educator, and Melody Haynes, Lake Cumberland ADD Workforce Development leader, presented informative talks about local and regional assets available to both businesses and individuals.
Health Department website a great asset to community
Jelaine Harlow, Health Educator 3 with Lake Cumberland District Health Department, shared a Community Health Assessment analysis for the ten counties in the district, "A Closer Look at Lake Cumberland." She said this is a brief snapshot of the health of Adair and surrounding counties from data gathered through community assessment provides information to community partners for their use in grant writing, program planning, needed resources and much more. She gave a brief tour of the LCDHD website, www.lcdhd.org, highlighting what a "great asset" it is for any who are researching for grants, work or are just curious about the region's statistics.
Job training opportunities with WIN courseware
Melody Haynes spoke next. She works for the Lake Cumberland ADD in the Workforce Development department as a Trade Career Manager, Rapid Response Coordinator and is the Cumberland Area WIN Administrator. She introduced a program now being offered by the Kentucky Career Center Business Services team and other partners of local Career Centers. The WIN courseware is an online workforce training program designed to provide training for persons attempting to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) and/or Kentucky Essential Skills Certificate (KEC); and college preparedness for 2-year degree application assessments. The courseware is a benefit for both employers and jobseekers.
