This month, Northeast Medical Group recognizes a key member of its Community Outreach Committee (COC): Chris Hines.

Hines, director, Regional Practice Operations, began working for NEMG in 2014 and has been a valued COC member since its 2015 inception. Of the many programs she’s volunteered her time to, her favorite has always been NEMG’s annual coat drive. Each year, NEMG partners with the Bridgeport Rescue Mission  to provide coats and Thanksgiving food items to the community. “The first year we participated it was very overwhelming,” she said. “It was astonishing to see how many coats we were able to distribute to those in need. I remember working with a young mother and her three boys, and the absolute joy they had in getting new coats. This event is very special and truly embraces community outreach.”

When asked what she enjoys most about working with the COC, she said “The committee members are dedicated and have a passion to help improve their community. The members of the committee work well together and are always willing to give their time and commitment. It’s a true pleasure to be a part of this committee.”

The COC is instrumental in carrying out NEMG’s mission to help the communities we serve. For information or to join, contact Robert Mitchell, 203-384-5109. Watch for more information on committee initiatives.
