Board of Health Updates, University of Maryland Capital Region Health, Council Rules, Organization and Administrative Matters


The Prince George’s County Council concluded its 2018 Annual Retreat with Board of Health updates provided by Board of Health Consultant, Dr. Joseph Wright, and an overview of University of Maryland Capital Region Health on Friday, January 5, 2018.  

Council Chair Glaros, addressing her colleagues and session facilitators, noted the tremendous progress taking place in the area of healthcare and the work that lies ahead.

“There is a lot happening in healthcare in Prince George’s County.  The conversations happening today wouldn’t have been possible eight years ago, or even three years ago. We are at a remarkable point in time, really, truly changing the health outcomes for our residents here in Prince George’s County and moving health care forward. This is a pivotal moment, we can lose momentum or we can gain it and really hit those outcomes that we want to see in Prince George’s County.  That task is for us as a team.”


Chair Glaros and the Council also recognized the dedicated service of outgoing University of Maryland Capital Region Health President and CEO Neil Moore, thanking him for his work to provide access to quality healthcare for the residents of Prince George’s County. He will continue with the healthcare system until June.

The day’s events concluded with a discussion focused on preparing for At-Large Council seats after the 2018 General Election and administrative process updates.
