We invite moms to bring their babies to our weight check clinic. We will be able to address any breastfeeding needs at this time. Typically we would love moms to stay but due to Covid-19 we will need you to leave as soon as your baby is weighed and questions are answered. No siblings permitted. If more time is needed to assist you with breastfeeding, we will work with you to schedule a 1 on 1 visit, ideally after the weight check clinic. The new temporary location will be held at Memorial Hospital. Enter through the Lafayette/Centennial Parking Garage, go to the 3rd floor. Enter through the doors for the Childbirth Unit and we will be in the Family Education Rooms to the left. A lactation consultant will greet you and do a health screening. If you have any questions feel free to call 574.647.3475.

Bonneyville Mill

Wednesday, September 30 from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

For nearly two centuries, Bonneyville Mill has used waterpower to turn grain into flour. After harvesting, grain goes through the milling process of cleaning, drying, and sorting in preparation for the millstone grinding. Several pieces of historic machinery still run at the mill just for these tasks. On Fanning Mill Demonstration Day, get an up-close look at the mill's machinery in action and lend a hand using the hand-crank grain cleaner to prepare a batch of rye for grinding. : Participants are required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing (6 ft apart) during the program. —————————————————————— • COST: Free • AGE: All • MEET AT: Bonneyville Mill County Park [ Directions here: https://goo.gl/maps/fS8Z9f9aMmA2 ]

We have limited space for individuals to join the presenters at the Nationwide Conference and Event Center and unlimited opportunity for others to join and interact virtually. •Virtual participation is free to all. •If you need CEUs and attend virtually, the cost is $25. •In-person attendance, including lunch and CEUs, is $59.

We invite moms to bring their babies to our weight check clinic. We will be able to address any breastfeeding needs at this time. Typically we would love moms to stay but due to Covid-19 we will need you to leave as soon as your baby is weighed and questions are answered. No siblings permitted. If more time is needed to assist you with breastfeeding, we will work with you to schedule a 1 on 1 visit, ideally after the weight check clinic. The new temporary location will be held at Memorial Hospital. Enter through the Lafayette/Centennial Parking Garage, go to the 3rd floor. Enter through the doors for the Childbirth Unit and we will be in the Family Education Rooms to the left. A lactation consultant will greet you and do a health screening.

Suicide prevention and intervention, planting the seed of HOPE!QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 1-2 hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers). The process follows three steps: (1) Question the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide, (2) Persuade the person to seek and accept help, and (3) Refer the person to appropriate resources. Trainees receive a QPR booklet and wallet card as a review and resource tool that includes local referral resources.
