The Hoskinson Health and Wellness Clinic (HHWC) proposes to launch a community health communication program to encourage safe sleep practices in parents of infants 0-12 months residing in Wyoming, which will disseminate information via multiple media outlets including: 1) books and checklists distributed to parents during pediatric health care clinic visits; 2) clinic waiting room video monitor streaming; 3) online information and checklists via links to the HHWC website; 4) social media outlets, and 5) improved health care access and social support via an established Hoskinson Community Health Coalition (CHC).
The Empowerment Through Prevention Initiative is an initiative that will empower women to take control of their healthcare through prevention efforts. Northwest Heatlh Care is a Title X(ten) clinic in Cody and Powell, Wyoming. We provide annual wellness exams on a sliding fee scale, meaning that patients are charged on their ability to pay – oftentimes that rate is zero. With this initiative we will focus on providing women with education around the importance of wellness exams. We will do this through advertising efforts, providing small incentives to those who come in for the annual wellness exams as well as reminding women when their annual wellness exam is due. In addition, we will help women navigate the current healthcare system if further testing is needed.
Wind River Cares’ “Education Excellence Division” is currently developing an in-house training program for Community Health Aides (CHA) to serve the Wind River Reservation, and we would like to pilot a microcredential training within the CHA training focused on promoting maternal and infant health.
