    When: Thursday, December 14, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

    Where: Remote via Zoom

    Who: Open to all community members... Parents, high school students, school nurses, health professionals, members of civic/community groups, and others!

    What: Learn how electric school buses work, what it takes to get one in your district, how to help your school district apply for funds, and success stories from midwestern communities that already have them.

    What's the issue?

    Outdated, diesel school buses are known to emit harmful particulate matter linked to cancers, cardiovascular, and respiratory diseases. Exhaust from diesel school buses is also linked to asthma attacks in kids. Cleaner, cost-effective electric school buses reduce these health risks and are better for our kids, environment, and over the long-term — our school districts' budgets!

    What's the solution?

    Minnesota communities can apply to a mix of state and federal funds, including the EPA's Clean School Bus Rebate program, which is open until Jan. 31. The next step is to register for the above info session.

    In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, the Minnesota Oral Health Coalition, Normandale Community College, and the Minnesota Dental Hygienists’ Association announce the establishment of a Collaborative Dental Hygiene Practice Toolkit on the Minnesota Oral Health Coalition website. The importance of the Toolkit is significant and far-reaching.

    The Collaborative Dental Hygiene Practice (CDHP) Toolkit originated at Normandale Community College as part of a 5-year U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration grant. Dr. Colleen Brickle, Dean of Health Sciences · Normandale Community College states, “The grant brought together 18 dedicated oral healthcare professionals committed to moving collaborative dental hygiene practice (CDHP) forward. These professionals met quarterly for five years on many initiatives. One of the products produced was the contents of this CDHP Toolkit”.

    Maintaining the availability of these valuable resources will empower those interested in collaborative practice. Three examples of many, resources found in the CDHP Toolkit include:

    * Provides in-depth information on starting a collaborative practice, to include a collaborative agreement template.

    * Describes one Minnesota dental hygienists journey toward a successful collaboration with a dentist.

    * Offers guidance on how to navigate the financial aspects of collaborative dental hygiene practice.

    Pat McKone from the American Lung Association and Erin Simmons from MyPlace in Mankato, MN, will help lead this interactive discussion and unpack how these devices impact you and the people around you. 

    This is one of a 3-part vaping informational series co-hosted by 100 Rural Women and the American Lung Association. Part one, held in March of this year, focused on general information about vaping and how it affects our rural communities. Part two is centered around the physical and mental health impacts professionals are seeing as a result of long-term vape use. Part three, to be held in December, will highlight people and organizations doing important work in the movement to end vaping.

    Vaping, introduced initially as a cessation device, has quickly become an epidemic in our nation. With more and more people entering hospitals due to vaping injuries, the true intention behind its use has been called into question.
