Wellness Forum “The Power of Collaboration in Sequim”
Members of the Sequim Health and Housing Collaborative will present a WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday June14th at 2:00-3:00 pm on KSQM FM (91.5) radio station.
Speakers from Peninsula Behavioral Health, Sequim Food Bank, Olympic Community Action Programs, Healthy Families of Clallam County, and Dungeness Valley Health and Wellness Clinic will speak about what each of these members of the Health and Housing Collaborative are bringing to help families in our community.
In response to a request by the City of Sequim in the fall 0f 2018, these organizations banded together to form the Sequim Health and Housing Collaborative (SHHC). They focus on five areas set out by the City of Sequim: physical health, behavioral health, sheltering, substance use, and food insecurity. SHHC is creating a unique network that promotes community health and offers pathways to housing in a synergistic and unified approach.
WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health Wellness Clinic—Sequim’s free clinic. The Clinic provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members. Our work is supported by more than seventy volunteers, including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.
