Program Highlight: the GrapeVine Project

edited

The Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation partners with nurses throughout the state by providing them with the most up-to-date tools and educational information about various health topics through our program The GrapeVine Project.  All information presented is gathered from local state and national organizations with expertise in the specific health area, and is continually reviewed by medical advisors and partner organizations to ensure the most current information is shared. GrapeVine sessions teach participants about risk factors, symptoms, prevention, lifestyle changes and resources to lead a healthy life.  Nurses can provide sessions in businesses, homes, churches, community centers, libraries, and other public locations.  All participants receive a small gift at the end of each session. Almost 7,500 women have participated in GrapeVine Educational Sessions since 2002.

GrapeVine Partners receive:
