Attorney Joel Foreman of Foreman, McInnis & Associates and PotashCorp Public Affairs Manager Mike Williams were both recently appointed to the Haven Hospice Community Advisory Board (CAB) of the Suwannee Valley area. The purpose of the CAB is to provide guidance to the local office and is made up of local business and community leaders who have a vested interest in promoting Haven in their community.

“I was humbled and honored when Mr. Brooks invited me to join the Haven Hospice Community Advisory Board in Columbia County,” said Foreman who is the founding shareholder of Foreman, McInnis and Associates in Lake City. “Through my own life experiences, I have come to know the importance of hospice care to the patient, to the patient’s family and loved ones, and to the community at large. I have also witnessed the impact of palliative care through my representation of people dealing with their own life-limiting illnesses or illness within their family. There are no words to explain what quality hospice care means to those who need it. There is no dollar figure that reflects its value to those who are well-served. If I am able to do my small part to help maintain and improve the quality of hospice care in Columbia County, then it is my privilege to do so.”

New CAB Member Mike Williams has been the public affairs manager at PotashCorp—White Springs for almost ten years. He is also a retired, senior non-commissioned officer who served in the United States (U.S.) Army for over 30 years on a variety of world-wide assignments. From 1998 to 2005, Williams served on the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners.

Haven Hospice Administrator for Suwannee Valley Joseph Brooks is looking forward to having these two new members on the Lake City CAB. “Both Mike and Joel are tremendous assets to our local communities and superb examples of what it means to have a servant’s heart in everything you do,” said Brooks. “Joel and Mike both have deep roots in our area and are long-time supporters of Haven Hospice’s mission to provide comfort, care and compassion to those we serve."
