Preventative Health Programs Through TMC's Wellness Connection
Did you know that Don Bosco has a collaborative partnership with Truman Medical Centers at the ESL School known as the Wellness Connection? Established and managed by TMC’s Community Health Strategies & Innovation, the Wellness Connection strives to provide preventative health programs to our students through its unique community health model designed to educate and empower individuals to take control of their own health and wellness.
The platform incorporates innovate tools such as the Healthy Harvest Mobile Market, a "Classroom on Wheels" that delivers fresh, affordable healthy foods throughout the metro area. The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market team also creates and facilitates interactive nutrition-focused classes for students to improve family diet and nutritional well-being.
Additionally, the Wellness Connection provides a Community Health Nurse, evidence-based Chronic Disease, Diabetes, and Pain-Self Management Programs, various health screenings, and much more. You can learn more about the Wellness Connection program at the ESL School and access their Healthy Harvest Mobile Market schedule at: www.trumed.org/resources/community-health
Dine Out for DB @Minsky's in May!
Our April 24th Dine-Out Day at Buffalo Wild Wings was a blast! It was such fun to meet up with all the folks who came out to Zona Rosa to dine in support of Don Bosco's mission to empower our under-served KC neighbors so they can be self-sufficient, contributing members of the community.
Next month, on Monday, May 13th,we'll be feasting for the cause a little closer to home: at Minsky's Pizza in City Market! This is another all-day event—11a.m. to 10p.m.—so you'll have plenty of time to do justice to some of the best pizza in town! We've even booked the event room during dinner so we have a dedicated space to hang out with all our fabulous supporters!
Don't forget to mention Don Bosco when your order so Minsky's can donate 15% of your bill (excluding alcohol) to Don Bosco! Offer applies to dine-in or carry-out orders only.
