As of the beginning of December, The Phoenix Community has thus far completed two interviews, on the same case, and will be completing the third interview next week. As a result, we will be able to close our first case which is an exciting milestone that we are celebrating with the utmost respect and gratitude for our community coming together to help us achieve this. We recently spoke at the Arizona State Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers board meeting that concluded in total team support of our project and implementing Operation Deep Dive into the funerary process they undergo with families. Additionally, the Arizona National Guard and Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System have shared project information with their respective audiences, internally and externally, for maximum interview participant outreach.
It’s been a busy quarter and we are fortunate to have had the response we’ve had!
