On August 11,  Manos Juntas Foundation had a retreat just for volunteers to plan our efforts to assess the health and needs of our neighborhood (Gatewood - 10Penn). There were a dozen volunteers in attendance of the first meeting with more than a dozen more joining throughout this week. A genuine excitement could be felt in collectively putting together our plans to get involved with the Gatewood-10Penn community

Every volunteer in attendance throughout the week has come together in support of our new initiatives. Our own head physician and founder, Dr. Boyd Shook and the many volunteers associated are pressing for the assessment of the surrounding area's health to be completed Labor Day weekend. Our plans currently include posting fliers by this next weekend and completing the verbally administered surveys, written by Dr. Shook, Max Weddington, Matt Boehme, and Casey Prammanasudh. 

Below is a video of the presentation we had.  Please contact Trammy if you are interested in helping, know someone who would like to help, or have any questions.  Her email and phone number are tramanh.lai@manosjuntas.com and (405) 605 - 3101.
