Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – Representative John M. Mizuno has been selected as a Co-Chair on a subcommittee of The Council of State Governments’ national Healthy States Task Force. The Task Force and subcommittees will convene on Monday, June 17 - 19 in Lexington, Kentucky.
The subcommittee's dedicated purpose is to develop a framework on the capacity, preparedness, and resiliency in healthcare access and delivery during and in the aftermath of a natural disaster or health crisis.
“The CSG Healthy States National Task Force will bring together a diverse group of state policymakers to explore ways states can best meet the challenges presented by the current health care system and leverage the revolutionary changes occurring in the health sector,” said CSG Executive Director David Adkins.
Mizuno (District 28 - Kalihi Valley, Kamehameha Heights, portion of Lower Kalihi) will co-chair the Capacity, Preparedness and Resiliency, or CPR, subcommittee. The subcommittee will examine case studies and review recent state responses to health crises, including ways to prevent and/or reduce the impact of health crisis through preventive care.
