On Saturday, September 26, 2020 we had over 45 people gather to clean up trash along the Mississippi River.  This was part of a project led by The Mississippi Runs Through US Provisional Cause-Based Rotary Club that gathered many Rotary clubs the same day.    Our gathering consisted of the Downtown Rotary Club of La Crosse, Rotaract members and Rotary Club of La Crosse After Hours members.  We picked up many things from fishing line, to barrels, to dentures.  There is an annual river clean up that is done in La Crosse each spring.  In the future, we plan to support the spring effort and continue to lead the fall river clean up effort.   We tracked our garbage pick up through a Marine Debris Tracker led by National Geographic.  We'll be able to know how much was picked up on Saturday by the shared Rotary efforts. DATA below.    Thank you to everyone who participated.    PHOTOS OF THE DAY

All of Us Research Program

Presenters Alyson Haugen, Kristy Honaker, Dr. Sig Gunderson and Dr. Steven Manson

All of Us Research Program now enrolling at Gundersen Health System

 

 

The All of Us Research Program wants to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do this, they’re asking one million or more people to lead the way to provide the types of information that can help us create individualized prevention, treatment and care for all of us.

“The All of Us Research Program aims to change the face of medical care from ‘one size fits all’ to one that takes into account our individual differences. It is one of the most ambitious projects sponsored by the National Institutes of Health,” said Murray Brilliant, Ph.D., former lead investigator for All of Us Wisconsin and director of the Center for Precision Medicine Research. “Our vision for All of Us Wisconsin is to offer the opportunity to join this program to the entire state. Our current sites are in La Crosse, Marshfield, Madison and Milwaukee. 

The Wisconsin consortium led by Marshfield Clinic Research Institute and joined by University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Gundersen Health System, is spearheading enrollment in Wisconsin. People ages 18 and older, regardless of health status, are able to enroll. The Wisconsin consortium is a partner of the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program and is one of several regional networks across the country where individuals can enroll.

To learn more, contact AllofUs@gundersenhealth.org, call (608) 775-2171, or visit joinallofus.org/Gundersen. Also follow our Facebook page at Facebook.com/AllofusGundersen.

Together, let’s create a healthier future for all of us.

 

 

The Brain Game
 

"The Brain Game" is a user-friendly educational guide which explains to parents why and how their child is learning and developing. Additionally, the book includes specific activities, songs, and suggested behaviors that parents can engage in to help foster their child's intellectual and social development. 

The Brain Game was born when the Director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families spoke to the Rotary Club of La Crosse, WI. She was excited to spread the word of new, cutting-edge research into early child brain development. More than ever before, scientists discovered that proper stimulation of children in the first three years could play a huge role in growing a healthy brain.

During this meeting we'll learn more about The Brain Game, along with some exciting new developments around it.
