‘Loving Yourself’ healthcare event an enlightening experience

It’s scary to find out you’ve not been taking proper care of yourself
Responsible, elegant, determined, intergenerational, promising, informative: These are a few adjectives to describe the “Loving Yourself” event held March 19 at Heritage Senior Center in North Minneapolis. The event was promoted as a Breast Cancer Awareness event for African and African American women sponsored by Neighborhood Healthsource and many other community participants such as the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, UCare, Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, and the African American Breast Cancer Alliance. Approaching the venue, participants were greeted with the “Q”mmunity truck, a mobile health unit owned and operated by the Southside Community Health Services Inc. There was also a truck dedicated to providing mammography testing for women who were curious and willing. These health checkpoints were available to visitors before stepping into the “meat and potatoes” of the event. Participants were enthusiastically welcomed at an information table with personalized nametags, recyclable bags, and other small “thank you for coming” sponsorship items.

The main floor of the Heritage Senior Center houses a YMCA that is dedicated to helping those seniors who live in the residential space of Heritage and the local community. Continue Reading →
