"It was a lot of work managing the media and comms but it always feels good. Nat'l Health Center Week was a huge success with hundreds of events around the country including PR and USVI. Also made a huge splash on social media (over 40M impressions). My favorite part was checking in with my doc at Little Doctor Day. #communityhealth#NHCW17 " - Dorian, Grassroots Manager, Outreach and Communications

"Running is political and so is health... Black men were less likely to engage in outdoor physical activity; Black Man Running (BMR) was a community organizing process that could bring people together -- Activists, faith leaders, artists -- running for justice and to have a conversation about justice. Protest flashpoints are exhausting. BMR allows them to confront issues in a way that is re-energizing and sustainable. WE ARE #freemovementproject Runners." -Rend Smith, co-founder, Black Man Running #TEDTalkTuesday#TEDxUNC#whatifmch www.beforeandbeyond.org/whatifmch #bmrilm

💥GROUNDBREAKING!💥Today, we broke ground on our new state-of-the-art facility! Thank you to everyone who came out to show their support for NTACHC during this exciting time. This would not be possible without the support of so many community organizations, key leaders, stakeholders, and dignitaries. We are so grateful for the opportunity to serve those in Fort Worth. Stay tuned for updates on the progress of our new facility! .
Today I started a week in community psych. I'm looking forward to seeing patients in a setting where we can connect them with needed resources. There are so many people at the site (over 60)- a psychiatrist, a primary care physician, a pharmacist and pharmacy, group therapists, counselors, and social workers. It's wonderful to see this holistic approach to patient care.
I saw patients in the morning and then sat in on one of the groups. It's incredible what some people have gone through- deaths, abuse, neglect, financial struggles, familial and relational struggles. It makes me feel blessed for all I have. I understand why group therapy is more effective. Universalism... even if another person doesn't understand exactly what you're going through... they can relate in another sort of way. We all have struggles, some might be more significant than others, but all are trying yet surmountable. .
Also, we went out watch the solar eclipse! ☀️🌑 Amazing!
#showyourlovetoday & squeeze in a few minutes to appreciate the world around you. Too often we take for granted the beautiful blue sky and mother nature's colors! Maybe grab some #solareclipse glasses and watch the #eclipse2017 for a few minutes? 🕶🌑🌖
This round of The Infinity Challenge wraps up today! My friend Kevin has rocked the last 6 weeks! The difference in these pics is 3 months. He said that he and his wife have tried a lot of different diets but never have gotten the kind of results that they've gotten in just 6 weeks of participating in #theinfinitychallenge 🙌 I've said it before and I'll say it again, the missing factor for many is motivation and accountability...that's where I come in! I love these kinds of stories!! #weightlosstransformation#motivation#communityhealth#infiniteagame#gettinghealthy
The main objective of the project is: to diagnose and successfully treat neonatal jaundice and provide capacity development for expectant mothers, mothers of young infants and the community to help prevent neonatal jaundice and strengthen the health of the target beneficiaries. This objective was carefully formulated in accordance with the goals of Nigeria’s long-term health agenda as outlined in the National Health Policy 2016 and our strategy is in line with Nigeria’s goals of health access for all.
We appreciate this opportunity to partner with ACT Foundation and Access Bank to reduce child mortality in Nigeria one community at a time.
Neonatal jaundice accounts for about one in five neonatal admissions in Nigeria and has been associated consistently with infant fatality and neurological impairments such as cerebral palsy and auditory impairments.
Late diagnosis leads to the high rates of acute jaundice which requires blood transfusions to preserve life, although the long-lasting results of neurological damage are untreatable.
Look at the control from these lovely ladies for their oblique knee tucks! For Mary and Jo, as Masters rowers, having a strong core is crucial for preventing and managing injury, but also allows them more power in the boat 🚣🏼♀️
