21:09 < Joe> Just adding it now.
21:09 < malt> Good call, I think we've covered the rest of the wraparound
21:10 < Joe> Having overlapping paths to the same goal ensures that
       everyone gets the care needed.
21:10 <@jokeefe> “By embracing preventative care, including mental
       health, substance abuse treatments, diversion programs for at risk
       populations, ensuring access to enough food and housing support, we can
       provide quality care for all while reducing our long-term expenditures.”
21:11 < Joe> Plus someone whom would not want to conform the the norms
       of one program would have options and not slip through the cracks.

21:20 < Joe> That looks good. I would like to see if I can get a
       healthcare professional on this as well.  If you have anyone in mind I
       would love to hear about them.
