Working for the Weekend: Connecting Communities


As I mentioned in my 2.6.16 blog post, I sometimes work at health fairs during weekend and evening hours. I like doing this, because it tests my communication skills (I get to practice my 30-second elevator pitch over and over again!). It gets me away from my desk for a little while, and it stretches my relationship-building muscles. I get to interact with new people and programs, and learn about organizations that are outside of my immediate program area.

I was recently privileged to exhibit at Connecting Communities 2016, sponsored by the Gadsden County Healthy Start Coalition

There are many caring, hard-working people in Gadsden County, and at this event, they reminded me to “Work Hard, Play Harder” :) Thanks, everyone!
truly in the country!

great sponsor,

minions in sync,


outside fun

It was difficult
to pick one out of the many wonderful organizations represented at Connecting Communities. I decided to go with the Prescription Assistance Medical Services (PAMS) Program, supported by the Gadsden Community Health Council. Go Gadsden!
