Guided by a commitment to sustainability, a desire to empower through education, and a focus on accountability, WellShare partners with communities and health care providers to design, implement, and evaluate health programs that respond to the needs of each population they serve. Using a community health worker model, WellShare reduces health disparities by reaching underserved communities to promote health, prevent disease, and increase access to health services. They work with refugee and immigrant communities in Minnesota and with underserved rural populations in East Africa. Their programs address the health needs of individuals across the lifespan – including pregnant women, infants, children, youth, adults, and the elderly.

*The MINN Talk and Tour (T&T) is an opportunity for MINN members to gain first-hand knowledge of the workings of international NGOs in the state. The T&T agenda is simple. Employees of an international NGO offer a private tour of their facility and then field questions about their organization’s work and their office culture. While MINN T&Ts are free and open to MINN Members, space is limited, and registration is required.  Please consider joining the hundreds of international professionals who already have a MINN membership. Click here to join.  If you have questions regarding your membership write us at [email protected].

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY

There will be a networking opportunity following the Talk and Tour at Ice House starting at 7 pm. The Ice House event is open to all who would like to network with the MINN community and WellShare International staff!
