Annual Food Summit
The First Annual Albion Food Summit was an opportunity to be together with people from Calhoun County 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. The Food Summit 2022 was hosted by Albion Healthcare Alliance and the Community Table of Albion and took place at the Kellogg Center at Albion College.
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 https://albionmich.net/labor-day-albion-walk-the-trail/
Below are some recent clinics that were organized by Albion Healthcare Alliance in conjunction with other groups including Calhoun County Health Department and Grace Health. These were posts on Facebook, so to visit our Facebook page go to this link: https://www.facebook.com/albion.hca
To see more about our work on Health Care including vaccines visit our Health Care page here: https://albionhealthcare.org/healthcare-albion/
Albion Healthcare 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.
