Michigan health challenges
High incidence of obesity
High rate of violent crime
Low public health funding per person
The CHNPA (Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity) undertakes many programs to promote a healthier way of life among the people of Michigan.
The HKHM (Healthy Kids, Healthy Michigan) works vigorously to reduce the rate of obesity, particularly among children. It is now a coalition of decision makers from 120 organizations across the state and has been working over the last five years to reduce the rate of obesity.
The HBPU (High Blood Pressure University) is a platform where the best resources are made available to affected people, professionals and community groups in the form of educational handouts, clinical guidelines, reference and training material, to help keep the blood pressure of the people within healthy limits.
To encourage the state residents to lead a healthier lifestyle by eating healthily, exercising regularly, and giving up tobacco, the Michigan Department of Community Health and several faith based organizations have been working hard to create an awareness of the steps that could help achieve their goals.
The MFBHA (Michigan Faith Based Health Organization), which is a coalition of public health professionals, faith based organizations and experts, was formed for this very purpose by Matt Parker in 2005. It has now become a cornerstone for providing expert guidance.
The National Cancer Institute has also developed a program for African-American churches by the name of Body and Soul. It encourages its members to eat lots of fruits and vegetables, so that they can be healthy in the mind as well as the body.
Besides these, many other partnerships, alliances and congregations have been established for the purpose of improving the health of the average man.
Oct 04, 2014 -- 9-year-old girl hanging by her neck from a truck window, saved by water department workers
Two water department employees responded to a call about water in a basement when one of them spotted a girl hanging by her neck from a window of a truck. They quickly turned their vehicle around to help the girl. When they freed the victim from the window, the girl became limp in her arms. They called for help and began CPR on the victim until she was able to breathe again. They had CPR training before but this was the first time they ever put the training in use. It was a very lucky moment for the victim because if the workers did not pass by, no one knew how much time would have passed before she got rescued.
Oct 11, 2013 -- Woman saved by police officers
Police officers save lives every day, but their law enforcement skills were not the highlight when they were able to rescue a woman from a near- death experience. Two officers, Paul Kahrs and Jeffrey Firman, responded to a distress call from a hotel, only to find out that they would not need their guns to solve the problem. Upon seeing the lifeless woman, they sprang into action and applied CPR. The woman’s pulse slowly came back until she was breathing again. The fire department took over the situation and transported the woman to a hospital where she recovered fully. The teamwork of the officers and the fire department was praised by the hotel, their respective departments and the woman’s family.
Apr 17, 2013 -- Coach saves soccer referee with CPR
Todd Schisler knew something was wrong when he saw the referee, David Shane, collapse during a soccer game. Shane had Lyme disease, but he reassured his colleagues that he would be okay even if he did faint. However, Schisler could not find a pulse and got the help of the athletic trainer, Jeff Maier, to perform CPR compressions on the referee. Keeping calm amidst the panicking, the two were able to get a head start on the CPR before the paramedics arrive. They drove the referee to the hospital, where Shane made a full recovery. Shane is eternally grateful to Schisler and Maier for saving his life on the soccer field.
