Fifth Annual Long Island Festival & Walk For Mental Health Set For September 17th

Fifth Annual Long Island Festival & Walk For Mental Health Set For September 17th










LONG ISLAND, NY (PRWEB) August 9, 2006

The fifth annual “Long Island Festival & Walk for Mental Health” is scheduled for Sunday, September 17 at 1:00 p.m. The “Walk for Mental Health” is the only event of its kind that is intended solely to raise awareness of mental illness and the consequences of its stigma instead of raising funds. Participants represent many community members, mental health organizations, professional associations, parent groups, individuals and families. Long Island columnist Ed Lowe is Master of Ceremonies as Long Islanders walk to Stamp Out Stigma of Mental Illness.

Those wishing to participate in the “Walk” will gather at the Huntington Post Office on Gerard Street by 12:30. Master of Ceremonies will be the famous Long Island columnist Ed Lowe, who is currently writing for the Long Island Press. He will lead the “Walkers” as they proceed to Huntington’s Heckscher Park. At the park, there will be an exciting festival with an art show, music, food and plenty of exhibits to encourage the walk’s anti-stigma message. There is also an exciting “Kids Corner” that includes an abundance of fun, entertainment and prizes for all.

The festival and walk is coordinated each year by the “Long Island Festival & Walk for Mental Health,” a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that is committed to raising awareness about mental health issues. The organization began with a group of individuals came together to encourage an anti-stigma message within the Long Island community. “Although one in five people across our nation is affected by mental illness, far too often there is a stigma associated with it even today,” noted M.J. Pulling, a “Walk” committee member and Director of Development for the Pederson-Krag Center, one of the largest private, not-for-profit outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment centers on Long Island. “This stigma continues to be a significant obstacle for individuals and their families and discourages them from getting the help they need because of their fear of discrimination,” added Ms. Pulling. “September is traditionally associated with a new beginning, a new year of learning. We hope that by holding our “Walk” in September, many people will begin to learn about mental illness and the stigma that so often is attached to those who suffer from it,” she continued

“The Long Island Festival Walk for Mental Health is an opportunity for people in the community to have fun while learning more about mental-health issues,” said Ms. Pulling. She added, “The more people understand the reality of mental illness, the less likely people will attach a stigma to it.”

Those who would like to participate should gather on Gerard Street by 12:30 pm. The walk will begin at 1:00 p.m., going east on Main Street (25A) until it reaches Heckscher Park. For more information, contact in Suffolk County, 631-471-7242, ext 1350 and in Nassau County, 516-505-2003, ext. 225.

Colorado?s Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics and Rural Health Clinics Celebrate 2nd Annual Safety Net Clinic Week

Colorado’s Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics and Rural Health Clinics Celebrate 2nd Annual Safety Net Clinic Week










(PRWEB) August 22, 2011

Colorado’s Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics and Federally Certified Rural Health Clinics are celebrating the second annual Safety Net Clinic Week, August 22 – 26, by inviting state officials and the public to visit their clinics.

The Colorado Rural Health Center’s Chief Operating Officer, David Lack, said people often think all parts of the critical health care safety net are supported by federal funds, but the realities are startlingly different. “Rural Health Clinics and Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics often receive very little if any federal funding; instead they rely on a complex and vulnerable funding stream. Mobilizing efforts to ensure all safety net providers are recognized and adequately funded is essential to ensuring our ability to continue delivering care to some of the state’s most at-risk residents,” Lack explained.

ClinicNET’s Executive Director, Sharon Adams, said one size does not fit all in the health care safety net. “All parts of the safety net and its varied models of care delivery are essential in order for every Colorado resident to have access to high quality health care,” Adams explained.

Colorado’s Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics and federally certified Rural Health Clinics consist of 85 clinics located in 33 counties throughout Colorado. Annually, Colorado’s CSNCs and RHCs provide an estimated 750,000 visits to 300,000 Colorado residents, many in rural parts of our state. The clinics provide primary health care and chronic care services to low-income, uninsured and underinsured Coloradans.

About The Colorado Rural Health Center

The Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC) is an independent, nonprofit, membership-based organization that serves as the State Office of Rural Health for Colorado. CRHC offers programs and services to ensure that rural communities have access to high quality health care services. For more on the Colorado Rural Health Center visit http://www.coruralhealth.org.

She is so very impressed with the care and dedication that the Neonatal staff showed her sister, brother in law and her premature babies. Jen believes that children are our future and getting a supportive and loving start is very important to premature babies. The intent of this crop is to give back to the Special Care Nursery and allow them to better support other families who need their services.

This Special Care Nursery Charity Cyber Crop will include scrapbooking challenges, online classes, games, prizes, and more. Thanks to the truly amazing support and contributions from manufacturers in the scrapbooking and stamping industry, there will also be a raffle and silent auctions.

The first 50 orders will also receive a goodie bag filled with items from the crops sponsors. We are also asking that all participants create Congratulations cards for the nurses to give to the families with babies in the SCN.

NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%

NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%










Dekalb, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2011

Since establishing the scholarship in 1999, the NIU Executive Club has awarded nearly $ 100,000 in scholarship dollars to 17 exceptional NIU students. These significant scholarship awards have had a direct impact on the lives of the award recipients, who invariably go on to successful careers after graduating from NIU.

Monica Wallace, an attorney in the Health Law Department at Chicago-based McDermott, Will & Emery LLP in Chicago, was the first recipient of the NIU Executive Club scholarship in 1999. Today, she serves on the Executive Club’s Board of Directors, and mentors current Executive Club scholars.

“The level of support I received from the NIU Executive Club during my academic career was truly exceptional, and was instrumental to the success I have enjoyed in my career” Wallace said. “I gained opportunities for summer internships, participated in the club’s business and social activities, and met numerous accomplished alumni, many of whom I consider close friends today,” she added.

Michael Nicolas, President of the NIU Executive Club, said that the increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is a testament to the Club’s continued commitment to the academic success of NIU’s best and brightest students. “Since its inception, the Executive Club Scholarship has been our way of giving back to NIU by providing financial assistance to exceptional students. This significant increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is further proof of the Club’s commitment to our scholars, and to the University as a whole. We hope that our efforts serve as a shining example that Huskie pride is a lifelong commitment, which starts on campus and continues long after graduation.”

Funding for the Executive Club Scholarship is provided by the Club’s many activities, including its annual Scholarship Gala held in November. The Executive Club endowment is the second largest scholarship fund at NIU, and currently exceeds $ 582,000.

About the NIU Executive Club

Established in 1996, the NIU Executive Club is an organization dedicated to fostering professional and personal relationships among highly successful NIU graduates, and giving back to the NIU community. The Executive Club awards annual scholarships to exceptional students, connects students with mentors and internship opportunities, and sponsors a variety of educational forums and networking activities. In 2006, the Executive Club formed a partnership with the NIU Young Professionals Network to advance the career development of graduates with less than 10 years of experience.
