Agencies Will Share
Community Nurse

W

ith the help of a grant
from the Jewish
Fund, community
agencies Hillel Day School, the
Jewish Community Center
of Metropolitan Detroit and
Tamarack Camps have hired Gail
Chynoweth as their new com-
munity nurse. Chynoweth will
work collaboratively with all three
agencies throughout the year to
provide health care education,
prevention and services to their
populations.
Chynoweth will work closely
with the directors of Tamarack
Camps, Hillel Day School of
Metropolitan Detroit and the
JCC's Sarah & Irving Pitt Child
Development Center (Pitt CDC)
and will be available three days
per week during the school year.
She will be a full-time resident
during summer sessions at Camp
Maas in Ortonville.
"From my professional and per-
sonal viewpoint, it is very exciting
to be joining these great organiza-
tions:' said Chynoweth, who has
17 years of resident nursing expe-
rience. "My children are third-
generation Tamarack campers and
all four of my children have been
involved with the JCC and attend
Hillel Day School:'
Because all three agencies are
seeing more medically vulner-
able children, a more innovative
approach is needed to address
their increasing healthcare needs.
Tamarack recognized that to
maintain the quality summer
health care it is known for, the
agency must offer year-round
employment. After much thought
and research, collaboration was
made with Hillel Day School and
Pitt CDC, where a similar need
was recognized.
"I can't begin to tell you how
delighted I am that we have built
this important collaboration and
partnership between our Jewish
Federated agencies:' said Steve
Engel, Tamarack's executive direc-
tor. "This is truly an example of
how community needs can best be
met when agencies are in sync and
work closely together?'
This position is expected to posi-
tively influence the health status
and health behaviors of more than
2,000 children and adults, utilizing
an innovative model partnership of
health professionals, families and
school/camp staff members. ❑
