Well the Eaglehawk Children's Festival on Friday was a lot of fun with our child and family services staff joining the community for a big afternoon of activities. Zac and Chloe had fun playing with sensory play dough and eating slinky apples with our early childhood advisor Lara. We run out of apples they were so popular - healthy eating wins out! If you would like our child and family services staff to attend your event, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
At the Palomares Academy of Health Sciences to speak with students about careers in medicine! Doing our part to inspire the next generation of medical professionals!
Representing @pvhmc.fmrp are our residents Dr. Bermudez, Dr. Oladapo, and Dr. Jackson as well as faculty Dr. Chiriboga. #communityengagement#residentlife
This is such an awesome idea. As a school health consultant I work with almost 100 schools. You would be surprised at the rising number of children with nut allergies. In an effort to keep them safe your #family and #school should consider participating in the #tealpumpkinproject . We aren’t saying you can’t hand out candy; we are simply encouraging you to have a little something for the kiddos that have nut allergies. #nursenikkinp#halloween#nutallergy#communityhealth

This wasn't the aim of the outing, but it ended up being a community clinic.
This is something that's really needed in our society which has such poor health-seeking behaviour.
People live with all sorts of diseases, and the socio-economic implications of this are enormous.
Sick parent = sick family = sick community= sick nation = low GDP, because we know the government doesn't care about people, but only about money.
We need to take healthcare to people, since the limitations to seeking it are so enormous. Good Primary Healthcare centres actually located where they are needed, and not as some image-laundering project by a politician, will go a long way towards helping this.
Flu season has arrived!! Luckily we can all protect ourselves better with the flu shot.
Now available at many pharmacies.
I got mine last year for the 1st time, I FEAR needles believe or not. BUT I'd rather deal with the one time discomfort than risk the fevers,body aches and chills that I get annually during the holidays.
As health professionals infection control starts with you! protect yourselves and the community 😷🤧
If you have a dental appointment and have flu like symptoms...STAY HOME until your better.
Time to roll up the sleeve and DO IT

To the left we have our main man Christian, AKA Boutros Boutros Ghali or more affectionately known as Boots! Boots grew up in our community, after working hard to become a qualified skilled mason he joined us at @ghanameetmethere and Dream Big Ghana. He is now our project manager and is the main reason for our successful sanitation and education programmes! In this photo you can see Boots handing over the keys to an extremely proud, brand new EcoSan family toilet owner! #sanitation#ecosan#dreambig#composttoilet#health#communityhealth

Respect and gratefulness to @hoodhealth for their work and for sponsoring the #ancestralwayschallenge ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Black and Brown people in America are several times more likely to die from just about any health problem when compared to their white peers, even when you look at people whose income is the same. Why? What’s happening in the urban communities? And what can be done to change it? The Hood Health movement, spearheaded by the Hood Health Handbook, is a comprehensive source of information and insight on every health issue faced by the urban community. In plain language the authors draw on well known examples to illustrate what works and what doesn’t. Focusing on natural and affordable approaches to everything from asthma to ulcers, the authors provide practical solutions that anyone can read and use the same day. The HoodHealth movement bridges the gap between race, the inner city and health.
@hoodhealth is generously donating BOTH volumes of the Hood Health Handbook to a challenge winner! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can also purchase the books on Amazon. I have both and find them to be a great resource when undertaking a decolonized and historically-informed approach to community health education. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through the #ancestralwayschallenge , we join to share and celebrate the wisdom of our indigenous and ancient ways - whether we have practiced them for generations or are reconnecting with them after usurpation/diaspora. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our Need Based Scholarships provide families with financial support in order to preserve family stability. We award scholarships to families in recovery that have a need that is not addressed through other social support programs. We believe that our scholarship program helps more families reach successful long-term recovery.
Individuals become eligible to apply for scholarships by attending our worship Series and being actively engaged in their addiction recovery 💙#familyrecovery#sobersupport#communityhealth
It's the 14th #birthday of the OMHP office! Thank you to @urochester and the #Rochester community for supporting us through all the years!
We've grown a lot throughout the years, expanding on our community projects to include the Bridge Art Gallery in 2011, the installation of a borrowed Albert Paley sculpture in Strong Behavioral Health's atrium, an expansion of the gallery in 2016, an artist in residency project with artist Charmaine Wheatley in 2017, and most recently, the forming of a new community and #respite space right in our office!
We hope you continue to join OMHP as we continue to grow along side Rochester. Come visit us at Strong Mental Health and Wellness in G.9200!
