Dear Hilltop Community,

In response to the recent developments of the COVID-19 virus

in Pierce County and out of an abundance of caution, we held

a virtual HAC Monthly Community Meeting on March 16th, 2020,

instead of our regular meeting at the Hilltop Regional Health Center. 

Click on the HAC Virtual Meeting button to watch.

Due to meeting space closure, please log on to your Facebook on Monday, April 20th, at 6:00 PM, for a Facebook Livestream Monthly Community Meeting. Our Board President, Brendan Nelson, will provide announcements and updates for the community. Alyssa Torrez, Board Member, will share information, resources and activities. Program speakers may be scheduled - please check for future announcements; or, send us your email so you can receive our meeting notices and updates.

In order to provide a virtual meeting that meets your needs, please tell HAC what you would like to hear about by emailing hacoffice15@gmail.com .

Stay Healthy,

Board of Directors
