Health in the Hi-Line Event set March 28


March 12, 2019

From Montana State University Extension

Often it is difficult to pinpoint health care services in our area. As a rural state, Montana is limited with resources available to us, yet we have more in our community than we might be aware of.

Health in the Hi-Line is an event funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region. The goal of the event is to expose the Hill County community to different health care services and health care fields.

Health in the Hi-Line is scheduled for Thursday, March 28. It is a free event to the community. The event will begin at 4 p.m. at the Havre-Hill County Library with a keynote speaker and health care panel to highlight both traditional and non-traditional roles in health and sciences careers in the county.

Once the panel discussion concludes, participants are invited to walk to Van Orsdel United Methodist Church for the career and services fair. The community will have a chance to learn about different services in our community as well as more about fields that play a role in Hill County.

If you attend the event, you will receive a brochure with local services and there will also be snacks and door prizes. Community members that attend the career and services fair will also be entered to win a Fitbit.

The guest speaker is Jessica Sheehy, PA-C for Northern Montana Hospital. Jessica also serves as the health officer for Blaine and Hill County and has worked with students at Montana State University-Northern in the student health center. Prior to coming to the Hi-Line, Sheehy completed her Masters of Science in physician assistant studies at St. Francis University in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and her undergraduate degree at Carroll College in Helena.

The event is possible due to the collaboration between The Hill County Health Department, the Havre-Hill County Library, Van Orsdel Methodist Church and MSU-Extension. If you have any questions, please contact Extension Agent Jasmine Carbajal at 265-5481, ext. 2333, or email her at [email protected]
