Review for Healthfinders Collaborative Inc, Northfield, MN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

My name is Mohamed Bakri. I am a College Health Corps VISTA assigned to work at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Through my work as a VISTA, I have daily engagement with Carleton college community partners who are working on public health access and public healthy literacy issues. One of our community partners that I work with and admire is HealthFinders Collaborative. HealthFinders was established in 2005 as a free medical clinic providing quality, accessible and culturally sensitive healthcare services, at no cost, to low-income and uninsured residents of greater Rice County. The HealthFinders Clinic Operates on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Little Prairie United Methodist Church, located on County Road 88/130th Street in rural Dundas, MN. Since its inception, HealthFinders’ medical clinic has provided more than 2,000 free clinic visits, and annually more than 100,000 in-kind donations of laboratory and diagnostic services from collaborating local third party medical entities. In addition, HealthFinders executes an ambition Diabetic Program that serves 62 patients annually, thereby preventing chronic conditions that are economically costly to society. This program provides culturally appropriate diabetic care and builds knowledge and skills of patient to be proactive in their behavior. HealthFinders’ experience has been incorporated in health related course work in Carleton College, and Carleton students continue to volunteer supporting different aspect of the clinic work such as assisting with clerical, database, and translation work.
