The final Herbalista Community Health Fair of 2017 has come and gone. 😭 I have such profound appreciation for all the folks who bring this fair to life each month. 💚 Thanks to the healers and teachers, the hosts and guests, the fire starters and tea makers-- you inspire me! See you in 2018!✨✨✨ #healthfair#communityhealth#atlanta#holistichealth
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of facilitating a workshop on “Practicing #CulturalHumility in Healthcare” for West Oakland Health. We engaged in powerful conversations to reflect on the #diversity of our patient populations, as well as the diversity of our #communityhealth workforce. Thank you to all of the participants for their courage in sharing their personal experiences. And kudos to Shanay Conaway for organizing this professsional development opportunity for her staff.

It's true. I was literally tongue-tied when I met the professor whose work I've read and cited the most. Truly a great honour to learn from the expert in my research area, self-care in chronic heart failure ☺️ #research#postgrad#heartfailure#nursing#communityhealth
We’re proud to announce our participation in the One Charlotte Health Alliance. A collaboration between @givecarolinas and @novanthealth, One Charlotte will seek to increase access to care for families in-need. #clt#communityhealth#healthcare#dv#familyhealth
Big shout out to everyone who has connected with us and expressed interest in volunteering or working with @state.of.being this year.
In 2017, we piloted four programs with four unique organisations. We also facilitated self-care and compassion fatigue workshops for staff groups, and fundraised almost $3000 towards our 2018 programs!
During this time, Co-Founders Alice @alice.hobday.yoga and Jo @jo.buick have also been completing their 300hr Trauma Centre Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification through the renowned US-based Trauma Centre. This certification complements both Alice and Jo’s professional experience and studies in mental health, somatics and yoga facilitation.
In 2018, we are excited to be extending our reach as we connect with yoga teachers, yoga studios and community organisations to innovate new programs.
We are currently reviewing teacher and community organization EOI’s - you can fill one out via our website if you would like to be involved! 📷 of young people from our 2017 Mindful program with the Brotherhood of St Laurence.
We've been super excited for this much anticipated release 🤗 Amazing news for all current @emblemcannabis patients as they now have multiple methods of medication administration to choose from as well as prolonged duration of pharmacological effect when compared with just dried flower . Oils are effective at reducing the stigma around taking cannabis as medication and are so useful as a regular medication for chronic pain, mental health and sleep ! They are extremely easy to dose control so patients can feel confident (esp. the elderly) that they are taking their medication effectively and properly. Here's to a safe, happy, pain free holiday everyone and as always if you have any questions about oils , licensed producers or medical cannabis in general don't hesitate to throw me a message 🤗🌱
WAKING UP AND MOVING BY FAITH. The only thing I am concerned about is my execution. I don't care for the reception. I don't need any merit for my actions. I am a KING because I am a KING. I NEED NO OTHER REASON.
Are you royal as well? Comment a 👑 if you royal.
What a young and beautiful spirit. As I sit here in solitude my thoughts are at their strongest. I follow my first mind. I take action. I work towards accomplishing great things. I am royalty. Royalty doesn't need permission or approval. Royalty just gives notice. Royalty does not blindly follow the opinions of others, no matter how confidently spoken.

For the last couple of weeks I have working with other PCVs to help run leadership and health camps for girls and boys. Basically American summer Camp with some lessons thrown in. There was a combined total of over 160 students. Each student will go back to their schools and create clubs to teach the information they learned at camp to their peers.
These are the girls from the school closest to me. In February when school is back in session I will be helping them set up a GLOW (girls lead our world) club at their school a long with their teacher, another Pcv.
I am so happy and inspired to be working with these motivated young people!! #glow#be#peacecorps#likethisbees#communityhealth#Rwanda
One of the first goals of our partnership with Bubulo Dental Clinic will be to establish Breakfast and Brushing programs in the most disadvantaged schools in the region.
Children don’t have access to brushes or paste at home due to poverty and most children are eating only one basic meal a day so they spend much of the day chewing on sugar cane to keep their energy levels up.
Our Breakfast and Brushing program will give the children access to oral hygiene products, encourage a new toothbrushing habit and keep their tummies fuller thereby decreasing the need for sugar cane which will result in a lot less cavities.
We are looking for socially responsible dental supply companies who are interested in doing good to help us stock the schools with toothbrushes and toothpaste for 2018.
Reach out to us at email@example.com for more details.
Our collaboration with Bubulo Dental Clinic here in rural Uganda aims to address the lack of education and services available to the local community.
In a community where a large portion of the population lives in remote areas and well below the poverty line, prevention is so important.
In 2018 we will start delivering specialized oral health education to community members and health workers at schools and health centres around the region.
In addition to this we will be implementing Breakfast and Brushing programs at the schools with higher number of children at risk of developing oral health problems.
Today was awesome! (Swipe to view more pics). Health event was great and well received. I didn’t come to Honduras with this in mind but for those who know my core being, my heart is always ready to serve. The beauty of it all, is seeing the community come together to make it happen.
We value our community here at our gym. It’s important to have one another to push and encourage us as we are working out!
Congrats to the 4th Graders at Monroe Elementary School!!! They complete and WON the Hy-Vee KidsFit Squat Challenge!

I was MAD STRESSED the last few days. I'm feeling better now though.😞😞😞 A little bit of stress is an inditcator of big dreams. We stress out when we think of the workload instead of working.
When I stress, I GRIND.

Had a great day with @chefalexlima and our MSM high school CHW’s. Today was their healthy eating and cooking demo. They learned about food prep, plant-based diets and healthy eating. The menu was “kreens” (collard-style kale), Creole black-eyed peas, “golden cauliflower”, garlic mashed potatoes, vegan and vegetarian corn bread, and vegetarian gluten-free carrot cake. Thank you Principal @lateshiawoodley and @mcclarin_success_academy for their support. #MSMHSCHW ChefAlex #plantbaseddiet#vegan#vegetarian#healthyeating#CHW#communityhealth

In The Wellspring School library: The Healer Within, using traditional Chinese techniques to release your bodies own medicine. By Roger Jahnke✨
With this revolutionary guide, you will learn four simple and remarkably effective techniques to release your natural powers for healing. The methods—gentle movement, self-applied massage, breathing exercises, and meditation—are drawn from the ancient Chinese healing system of Qigong (Chi Kung) and are easily adaptable to every lifestyle. You can practice them almost anywhere—in the car, in line at the bank, at your desk, while walking, even in bed. Using these methods for as little as ten minutes a day can dramatically increase your endurance, vitality , and longevity✨
Stay tuned for more of our favorite titles in the weeks to come!✨
