Hennepin Healthcare partners with MDH to bring routine care to kids

Hennepin Healthcare started its mobile vaccination clinic in the early months of the pandemic, making home visits. Eighteen months later, they’ve expanded to pop ups.

“I think as word on the street spread about what we were doing, schools (and) head start centers reached out to us,” said Dr. Dawn Martin, a pediatrician at Hennepin Healthcare.

“The school teachers, the school nurses, the social workers — that community is established already, and for that community support to then say, ‘Hey, I’ve got some friends at Hennepin Healthcare. Why don’t you talk to them? That trust then gets extended to us,” said Sheyanga Beecher, a nurse practitioner at Hennepin Healthcare.
