Happy Holidays! The 4C program would love to thank everyone for their on going support throughout the development of the program.  As everyone is aware, the 4C program’s funding is ending December 31, 2017.  We’ve been grateful for the volunteers who have stepped up in helping continue the work for the Medical Home Meeting and to up keep the blog.
