HCC’s Oct. 8 Speakers Address Domestic Violence, Rural Medical Clinics, and Hispanic Heritage Month

Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey hosts it’s monthly meeting virtually via Zoom this Thursday October 8 at 9am (Zoom connection info below). Speakers will address three topics during this month’s meeting.

Victims’ Advocates Amy Reha and Kelly Ibarra of Community Chest Inc. will give a presentation on domestic violence awareness, resources, and regional strategies.

Cameron Burgess, Manager with UNR School of Medicine’s Rural Outreach Clinics, will describe outreach efforts in Yerington, Lovelock and Silver Springs. He’ll also talk about upcoming events including an October 11 free clinic in Yerington for migrant farm workers. The event, in partnership with South Lyon Medical Center and UNR School of Medicine, will include vaccinations, physicals, blood work, diabetes screenings and more.

Poet and Healthy Communities’ board member Shaun Griffin will read a poem in both Spanish and English in recognition of this month’s nationwide celebration of the contributions and influence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the U.S. Hispanic Heritage Week observation began in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15 each year. The poetry reading also serves as a way to recognize that October is Arts and Humanities Month in the state of Nevada.
