Our Minnesota Immunization Networking Initiative (MINI) project team at the Faith-Based Public Health Partnerships: Strengthening Community Networks meeting in Atlanta April 16-17th. Our program represented 102 vaccination events in Minnesota and over 7200 people vaccinated in 2011. The organization represented were: Fairview Hospitals, St. Mary’s Health Clinics, Open Cities Health Center, Minnesota Faith Health Consortium, Minnesota Department of Health and the River Valley Health Services. This initiative has proven to be a wonderful contribution to the health of our uninsured and underinsured.
Absolute surprise today! Went to Bridgewater Church in Savage to bring some of our flyers for their Tent of Hope event. Asked them if anyone from the church made baby blankets. They did and the lady was just delivering them to the church for donations. We now have 16 new blankets for our new moms and their little ones thanks for the WOW group (Walking On Water). Thank you so much!!
Floreciendo/Blooming…a wonderful event at Gracias Ministerios that River Valley participated in March 31st. The event’s focus was encouraging women to be all that they can be as a person, in their home and in their church. Kris Huinker from WIC presented recipe ideas for busy women. Blood pressure and diabetes screenings were provided to all. What a day for all of us!! Thank you for inviting us.
