The Center of American Indian and Minority Health (CAIMH), located on the Duluth Campus, co-hosted a ‘Back to School’ community event on Saturday, August 28, with their partners at The First Ladies of the Hillside, a community group of moms living in the Steve O'Neil supportive housing apartments. 

The Association of Native American Medical Students (ANAMS) chapter also hosted the event with a youth activities table, where youth were able to explore resting/active heartbeats using a finger pulse oximeter. Students could also make a craft stethoscope to take home. 

Miigwech (thank you) to our additional volunteers from our Duluth Medical School community – Dr. Jean Regal, Dr. Sara Zimmer, Cheryl Anderson, and Jessica Langer, who all donated their time. 

The First Ladies are continuing the call for more donations of youth-sized cloth face masks. If you would like to contribute, please drop them off at the CAIMH, located in SMed 182, or contact Kyrsten Olson,
