Medical Information for Families

The Meland Foundation believes that the more information on medicine and health that is provided to family members, the better able they are to make decisions that will have a positive effect on their well being.  This information must be accurate, up to date, timely and have physician approval and support.   Your family physician is your most important resource.

The Meland Foundation participated in Hip Hop Public Health’s video “Behind the Mask” to promote the wearing of masks, washing of hands and social distancing while assuring children that they “will still be seen behind the mask.”

Sarah Nelson, RN, Board Member and Program Manager for Meland's Medical Information Program gives the thumbs up on the new video that helps children deal with the emotions of wearing a mask.
