Keeping families healthy

By Jan Lee

St. Anthony’s Medical Center’s Charitable Foundation awarded Bayless Parents as Teachers program a grant for $3,600 to sponsor a Speaker Series for the program’s parent group meetings. William Morris, MD., Section Chief of Hematology and Oncology at St. Anthony’s, along with Jeff Randal, Executive Director, St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation, presented the check at the Board Meeting on January 21, 2009. The partnership with St. Anthony’s has allowed this prpogram to provide speakers on The Biology of Autism, Nutrition and Childhood Obesity, and Parenting 911 among others.

Refreshments and free babysitting were also made possible through the grant and a different topic was presented each month. We are very excited to have been given the opportunity to bring in some of the top speakers in our area to meet with our families. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation. Thank you St. Anthony’s!
