Hi, I'm the YF coordinator out in Gardner, KS. I am here today - a saturday, to try and catch up with data input. Is there anyway you can make up something that we can attach to our brain and everything that we do with youthfriends can be transmitted from our brain to the computer? I just thought this would be an excellent idea. We could plug in each evening and download out of our brain while we sleep. Anyway just thought I'd share this thought!

I am an RN presently pursuing a career in Independant Practice. I would like to obtain a Degree as an NP (Nurse Practioner) to further this goal. I am interested in Community Health Promotion because of the effect of health on ones life in general. I live in a very diverse community and find that many of the residents of my community dislike having others come into their community to tell them what to do. I wish to eventually open a clinic in my community to assist in health promotion.

Am working with a team of a health educator and PhD Epidemiologist to initiate programs in chronic disease prevention and injury control (eg. violence prevention, unintentional injury prevention, etc...) We are open to any suggestions, etc. We intend to do a community assessment to find out what is available already and where the gaps are and try to get the community agencies work collaboratively to help resolve some of these problems in a prevention mode. Do you know of resources for a good community assessment tool? Do you know of any communities doing any of this work already? Thank you in advance, Colleen C.

I work for the Department of Health with the Bureau of Special Health Care Needs. I read about this page in our weekly newsletter, the Friday Fax. I am very, very interested in helping my community. 5 years ago I started a nutritional program in Garden City Mo (where I live) for senior citizens. It is only funded by donations. To this day they serve home delivered meals to approximately 50-75 senior citizens in the surrounding area. I want to do more for my rural community and want to find out different resources. What I have heard about CHIME, a program with MO state to help communities, I have liked. I can't wait to find more out. I am currently going to school at Longview Community College and hopefully will recieve a degree in Computer Support Tech. Then I want to get a certificate in programming to help with my job advancement.
