Assignment Fox Cities

     About eight years ago, Outagamie county implemented a death review committee. 
Although the title sounds ominous, it's not.  Goal of the committee is to study trends
of young people dying and develop strategies to prevent that from happening.
     Outagamie County Public Health Manager Mary Dorn, a member of the committee,
says it's part of a statewide initiative.   The committee's documented records become
part of a national registry.
     There are 20 to 30 members on a team, meet monthly, sometimes to conduct
reviews and sometimes not.  Committee members have varied professional
backgrounds, work as a team, and follow a specific protocol.
     Give the program a listen.  You'll find it on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault
and Assignment Fox Cities.
