Milam County Health Summit
Milam County hosted a Health Summit on Nov. 10 at the Yards of Cameron. Roughly 70 people attended and heard from various speakers on several physical and mental health issues and the resources available to deal with those issues. Officials hoped to bring and spread awareness to one of the county’s most pressing issues. Speakers included George Losoya of the Central Texas Council of Governments, representatives from Baylor Scott & White Clinic in Cameron, Workforce Solutions of Central Texas, school leaders, Central Counties Services, United Way, law enforcement, and others. Much of the focus from many of those speakers was the need to work on, be aware of, and help with mental health crises.
