Learn more about Albion Health Care Alliance’s various events and former programs below. 

While an event any more, instead of the Albion Community Hospital Ball, there was a Holiday B.A.S.H., which is now a Fall newsletter with a recap of the past year and thanks to everyone who participated. Then we wanted another letter looking forward to the year ahead so we have just added a Spring newsletter!  You may be getting a letter from Albion Health Care Alliance.  If you would like a letter, please get in touch with us and ask to be on our mailing list!  If you would like to contribute, you may visit our Donate Page.  Thank you!

Annual Food Summit

The Annual Albion Food Summit is a workgroup and learning opportunity with people from Calhoun County and Michigan who help with food for Michigan residents.

People came together to engage in meaningful dialog and planning around addressing food security in the Albion area community. We will be sharing more information later about the issues of “food deserts,” creating and strengthening better systems of food distribution, and health equity.

Labor Day Albion Walk the Trail

Albion Healthcare Alliance Executive Director was Nidia Wolf from 1990 – 1995.  She had started the Labor Day Albion Trail Walk before that, when she was the director of Albion’s Downtown Development Authority.  Over the years, the walk kept changing and now includes a stopover at History Hill in Holland Park.  Albion Healthcare Alliance is committed to healthy outdoor activities.  See photos from past years below, and for more information visit

Albion Health Care Alliance also participates in local events to raise awareness for vaccinations.  We have Health Ambassadors that go door to door to let people know about clinics.  The program evolved from our Neighborhood Health Visitors Program that would help to raise awareness of health options for residents of Albion.
