Heartland APRN travels to Tanzania to prep for food aid field trial

Nicole Delimont, one of Heartland’s APRNs, travelled to the Bunda region of Tanzania from May 29-June 8. As part of her doctoral program, Delimont and a group of her peers spent ten days in the area making preparations for a field trial of a new food aid designed for children between 6 months and 4 years old. The food aid  is intended to increase their intake of essential vitamins and nutrients like vitamin A and iron. Nicole and the team she was with travelled to local health clinics in the region and talked with mothers about food, nutrition, and the project they were working on. They also coordinated with local health authorities and made arrangements for the field trial that will be taking place over the next year. “It was amazing to meet such incredible people. Many of them live in very difficult conditions, but they are still so resilient and hopeful,” said Delimont. One of Nicole’s favorite things she saw on the trip was a current initiative in Tanzania focused on expanding the use of secondary schools and colleges, especially for women. “It’s awesome to see such a great directive from such an impoverished region. Commodities from the U.S. Department of Agriculture are being used there for programs to encourage girls to go to school. It was awesome to see tax dollars going toward such great work,” said Delimont. Below are a few pictures from the... read more

Walk with a Doc Saturday, August 15

Join Heartland and Walk with a Doc on Saturday, August 15 at 9am. We will meet on the west side of the Medical Arts Building (346 Maine St.) to start the walk. There will be two routes: one that is half a mile and one that is a mile and a quarter. This free event is open to the public and gives participants the opportunity to meet Heartland’s providers outside of the clinical setting. Heartland will provide light snacks and refreshments. Walk With a Doc is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and to reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country. “This program has had tremendous participation and success in many other cities around the country,” said Heartland CEO, Jon Stewart. “I’m very pleased for Heartland to be part of this exciting and simple program that can help make a difference in people’s health.” Walk with a Doc was created by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist who practices at Mount Carmel Health Systems in Columbus, OH and he has been walking every weekend since 2005. The expansion and support of the program is thanks to Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Contact Heartland if you have questions or would like more... read more
