The Healthcare Association of Forsyth County’s Mingle Jingle on Dec. 2 is free and open to all health care professionals in the Forsyth community. The event runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Forsyth Conference Center & Healthcare Building, 7745 Majors Road in Cumming. RSVP by Monday to (770) 887-6461 or online at www.cummingforsythchamber.org.
Monday is the deadline for health care professionals to reserve a spot at the Healthcare Association of Forsyth County’s second annual Mingle Jingle.
“[Health care] is our fastest growing industry in Forsyth County,” said James McCoy, president and chief executive officer of the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce. “So we’re excited about having the opportunity to do this event.”
The association, a chamber initiative, will hold the Mingle Jingle on Dec. 2 in the Forsyth Conference Center & Healthcare Building at Lanier Technical College.
The building, which opened last month, has a 14,000-square-foot event room on its main floor.
Upstairs, the facility has classrooms for health care training, which another chamber official said made it an ideal venue for the event.
“That’s one reason we moved it to the new center is ... to give the opportunity for physicians in the area who have not seen the facility to come check it out,” said Jason Mock, the chamber’s director of Small Business Services Center.
“When doctors come to the Mingle Jingle, hopefully they’ll be able to check out the upstairs and see what other training is out there for their staff.”
The Atlanta Carolers will provide music and there will be heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
Mock said he expects as many as 200 guests for the event, which at its core is designed for networking.
“It’s going to be a great, great event for people in the health care business to meet and greet with people and hopefully build their businesses together and better serve all of us by making a better investment in our community,” McCoy said.
