Lincoln County Community Health Council Neutrality Policy 


The Lincoln County Community Health Council (LCCHC) has participation from a very broad and diverse membership. One of our ongoing priorities is to help Health Council members, local organizations, and the community at large to make decisions about their health and well-being, by educating and providing information about health issues, policies, proposals and news that affects everyone. 
The LCCHC will strive to be inclusive, recognizing that individuals and even experts may have differing opinions regarding different topics. We will attempt to present fairly what we believe to be reliable information, without endorsing one point of view over another. At no time will the health council endorse any political or social viewpoint and will do our best to present all aspects of a matter objectively and with balance. 

The Lincoln County Community Health Council (LCCHC) is an organization dedicated to the improvement of the health for women, children, and families of this county. Membership of the Council is open to anyone who is interested in promoting this concept. The Council operates under the auspices of the LCCHC, which approves members of the Council. It is therefore necessary to have a list of people who are interested in being active members of the Council. While all meetings are open to anyone in the county who cares to attend, voting on issues is limited to Council members.

Sincerely, 
Alisha Westmacott, Coordinator 
Lincoln County Community Health Council
