2015 GrapeVine Conference – Thank you!

Grapevine_color2   Thank you to everyone who supported our first ever GrapeVine Conference! Over 70 community nurses joined us for this 2-day event where we had the opportunity to teach 6 updated GrapeVine training units covering women’s health topics like diabetes prevention, gynecological cancers, breast cancer, bone health and breastfeeding and oral health.

The focus of this event was to provide educational resources and support to our community nurses by connecting them through networking opportunities, health training sessions and break-out activities. Attendees also enjoyed engaging in physical opportunities during meal  times, which included walks around the beautiful State Capitol and stretching exercises with instructors from Barre3. We were excited that over half of our attendees this year were new to the GrapeVine Project and are looking forward to their future involvement!

What people are saying… barre3

“Thanks to the GrapeVine materials, we’re doing lots of programming in rural areas which is good because a lot of people haven’t heard about the information we are presenting.”

Kris Wisnefske, Monroe Clinic, Monroe, WI (Monroe County)

“One lady came up to me after a GrapeVine presentation and said ‘I don’t know how you know all this information.’ I said it’s the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation that provides the information. I just share it. Before I had to piece things together, with the GrapeVine materials now I have it all in one place.”

Cynthia Schoettler, Parish Nurse, Madison, WI (Dane County)

“We’re really excited to do our first presentation, to get the word out, and to get other groups involved. I’m very impressed how organized the materials are. It’s a desk reference for me. If I had to do this research, it would take me hours and I wouldn’t be sure that I had all the key points.”

Melanie Simpkins, Green Lake County Health Educator, Ripon, WI (Green County)
