Project HEALINGS of MN

HEALINGS provides an opportunity to close vaccination gaps and solve persistent health inequities by galvanizing disparate regional efforts and forging unbreakable connections between BIPOC Minnesotans and the state, local, private, and nonprofit entities that serve them.

More background

 

HEALINGS will take critical information and interaction to the granular level within minority communities, accomplishing something everyone desires: equitable participation and inclusion in the health ecosystem. Project HEALINGS takes the very best people and practices and integrates them around equitable community health response.  It is an initiative with tangible benefits in the immediate sense in terms of COVID-19 vaccination, and sustainable benefits in the long term for the State of Minnesota and each individual who calls it home.
Project HEALINGS is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $1 million with 20% percentage financed with non-governmental sources.

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
