SE Minnesota Network for Women's Life & Health Scholarship
The Network for Women’s Life and Health (NWLH) was initiated in 1997 by Ann Falkenberg Olson and Priscilla Flynn. The organizational intent was to better serve Southeastern Minnesota women and their families by enhancing communication and collaboration between existing health and human service organizations. The NWLH identified unmet community needs, created new programs, and worked to reduced duplication of services between agencies. Areas of focus included education, preventive health, employment, social change, and spirituality. The NWLH provided a wide range of training programs for health care professionals, screening and referral programs for underserved women, and health education programming for women residing in the service area. The NWLH dissolved in 2015 with the Board of Directors committing the remainder of undesignated funds to support students with a strong interest in women’s health.
