Most Recent Audit
Our Health Care Services: Piloted new nurse triage services and online virtual office visits to expand access for patients; improved its clinic spaces by relocating two clinics and combining two clinics into one new site that is open seven days a week; implemented employee and customer standards to improve customer experience.<p> Our Educational Programs: In 2010, we reached over 25,000 people through parent-child retreat, peer education programming (adult and youth), community education and outreach. Program evaluation demonstrates that involvement in our programs increases sexual health knowledge, influences protective attitudes, and positively changes behavior to prevent unintended pregnancies, prevent sexually transmitted infections, and support the development of health relationships. Youth program graduates report an increase in confidence in communicating about sexuality with parents/mentors and peers; youth build connections with caring adults and have new opportunities to contribute to the community and the organization through peer education and outreach.<p> Our Grassroots Advocacy and Community Organizing Programs: Increased supporters: In Minnesota, we recruited record number of participants (640) for our annual solidarity event. In addition, we identified 1300 new supporters in the community surrounding our new Health center rollout. In North Dakota, we grew our supporter email contacts by 8% indentifying over 1800 supporters. In South Dakota, we recruited over 70 women and men to attend our Women4Women lobby day in Pierre and increased our supporter emails contacts to over 2600 individuals. Our department also achieved 100% growth in total Social Media Contacts covering all three states (Facebook fans and Twitter followers)
Current Goals
Our Health Care Services: Evaluate additional opportunities to connect with our patients using technology; continue to roll out employee and customer standards; expand Nurse Triage services. As we innovate and adapt, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing the full range of services, including annual gynecological exams, breast and cervical cancer screenings, birth control, testing and treatment of STIs, testing and referrals for HIV, and other specialized reproductive health care services.<p> Our Educational Programs: Expand our education programs to new communities including a new youth peer education program for Somali young women in the Rochester area and Hmong youth in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Also new in 2011 will be a parent-child retreat designed specifically for African-immigrant and those born into African families mother and daughter pairs. In 2011 E&O released the report Parent-Child Connectedness in our Communities to emphasis the power of parent-child connectedness in the protection against teen pregnancy, among many other adverse adolescent health outcomes.<p> Our Grassroots Advocacy and Community Organizing Programs: The goals of our department in 2011 closely mirror those of 2010, however our department will give even greater emphasis to outreaching to patients, unmarried women and youth including supplementing our student oriented work on college campuses. We will use all existing opportunities including Birth Control Matters Campaign and our reinvigorated Patient Engagement Network as the means to talk with our supporters. Social media/networking will continue to play an expanding role in our work throughout the organization.
