The event at the Kenton County Public Library was a big success. The event drew a capacity crowd.

“We were thrilled to see so many community professionals coming together from across Northern KY with the shared goal of helping Kentuckians thrive,” said a spokesperson for KVH. “We presented a wide array of important policy updates, including the latest economic impacts, a Mental Health Month spotlight on behavioral health, the restart for Medicaid renewals, what needs to happen next for childcare, non-emergency medical transportation, and more. There also may or may not have been a taco bar. It’s great to be back on the road in our local communities, networking, dialoguing, and sharing resources.” 

The event at the Kenton County Library’s Covington Branch was at capacity. They had a few last minute cancellations and were able to slot in a few people from our waiting list.

• June 13th, Owensboro 
• July 18th, Hazard
• August 15th, Morehead
