Below is a letter written by a client to our COO of Programs, Helena Deligt, informing her of the great services he received from one of our Case Managers, Crystal Rivera. We are truly humbled by his overwhelming appreciation and kind words.
April 1-7 marks National Public Health Week, and in celebration of this event we have a number of activities and events lined up for our clients and community. On Tuesday our Behavioral Health Department will provide clients with information on Medicaid Expansion and Wednesday our Case Managers will do the same with information on the Affordable Care Act. Thursday our Dental Clinic will be sharing “tips to improve your smile.” Clients will receive handouts for review as well as education on the importance of maintaining a healthy mouth. To finish the week, on Friday our medical team will “empower our community” by educating our clients about healthy lifestyles with information and giveaways. In conjunction with our outreach services at The Conrad Center, with help from VCU medical and pharmacy students, we will be educating consumers about the ACA, Medicaid Expansion, and our pharmacy services.
In addition to our events this week, our Medical Director, Dr. Lisa Price Stevens, was recently featured in a spotlight article for her Alma Mater, Walden University. She shared “how she hopes to positively impact her community because of her public health degree.” To read the full interview, click here.
It’s more quiet than normal at today at The Daily Planet. That’s because several of our staff members are in Washington D.C. attending 2013 annual National Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) Conference & Policy Symposium. We’d like to congratulate the following members of the TDP team for presenting posters the HCH Conference: Dr. Lisa Price Stevens, Medical Director, Dr. Kelly Goode, Pharmacist, Christine Darby, PharmD, Margaret Robinson, PharmD, David Pullen, BH therapist, Adea Finch, Medical Support Specialist, Dr. Leticia R. Moczygemba, Pharmacist.
