Community Engagement Monthly Report: May 2023


Essentia Health Assists Youth-Led Initiative in Ada

Essentia Health recently made a contribution to support a student-led project with the hopes of impacting all students at Ada Borup West High School.

Madalynn Crompton, a 9th grader, spent 6 months surveying her peers at school to find out what could help ease stress. The result was implementing a hygiene/supplies pantry in the school with the goal of easing some of the smaller struggles students might face. Kudos to Madalynn for her efforts and for making a healthy difference in the lives of youth in Ada and surrounding communities!
