Members and guests of the NAPW Baton Rouge, LA Local Chapter gathered on September 13th for a professional networking meeting at The Red Shoes, a Baton Rouge center that focuses on womens spiritual and personal growth. The organizations Executive Director inspired members and guests with her talk of their program, Lifting Loans, which is geared toward empowering women entrepreneurs.

Before NAPW Baton Rouge, LA President Trina G. Armstrong introduced the Executive Director of The Red Shoes, she welcomed Spenceyawnti (Spence) St. Amant, the Chapters newest member. Spence, the mother of three, is an accountant for the State of Louisiana whose responsibilities include budgeting and financial analysis.

Our new member told the crowd she enjoys being in a happy atmosphere, which makes her a perfect fit with the NAPW Baton Rouge, LA Local Chapter! said Trina.

This months venue for the networking meeting was also a perfect fit for the Baton Rouge, LA Chapter. The Red Shoes is a center that focuses on womens spiritual and personal growth. Yoga and meditation, arts and crafts, and wellness activities plus programs geared toward women entrepreneurs, are just a sampling of what the organization offers.

Wendy Herschman, the Executive Director of the nonprofit organization, took the floor to give members and guests an overview of the history of The Red Shoes.

The center is named for the red shoes that Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz believed she needed to get back home, explained Wendy. At the center, women are encouraged to find themselves and tap into the talents they already possess, forsaking what others believe they should do or be in the world.

Wendy went on to speak about the organizations Lifting Loans program, which gives women entrepreneurs a lift in getting their small businesses off to a good start. The micro loan is offered at a 5% interest rate to qualifying applicants. The Coordinator of the Lifting Loans program provided members with the actual application that is used to evaluate the feasibility of granting a small business loan.

At the conclusion of The Red Cross presentation, we were given a tour of the center. The main rooms feature meditation and arts and crafts activities, said Trina. The atmosphere at The Red Shoes was very warm and inviting. Members stated they plan to revisit the facility.

At the conclusion of the tour of the facilities, the Chapter President introduced the first segment of All Eyes on You, a new standing agenda item that Trina introduced at last months meeting that showcases members individual accomplishments and successes.

As President of NAPW Baton Rouge, LA Chapter, I believe that every effort should be made to promote NAPWs mission of empowering women and highlighting their ongoing successes.

Accordingly, Trina and the other members present at the meeting, Olevia M. Holland-Cooper, Alison R. Woods, and Spence St. Amant, all had the opportunity to let the others know about something positive that took place in their lives and/or careers since they last met.

Trinas accomplishment since last months meeting was she had secured two local business sponsors for the Susan G. Komen Pink Out initiative. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Chapters adopted charity, had asked that the Baton Rouge, LA Chapter serve as their champion of the Pink Out initiative by getting local businesses to donate to the cause.

Businesses will compete by donating $ 250 to the Susan G. Komen charity and decorating the front door of their businesses in pink during the month of October, said Trina.

Alisons accomplishment was that she had agreed to be a volunteer at future Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure educational events, such as health fairs.

Olevia was happy to announce she started a book club and recently received her Insurance Adjusters license.

Spence mentioned she is charting her next educational move and is considering whether to pursue her C.P.A. license or an M.B.A.

Trina also shared the latest NAPW news with members and suggested everyone visit the NAPW website for updates. She encouraged the women to check out the discounts that are available to members that allow them to save money with retailers who have partnered with NAPW.

A further discussion on the Chapters charity of choice, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, continued with Trina and Alison giving an update on the Komen Volunteer Casting Call rally, which was held August 25th. Trina reminded members of the upcoming Perfectly Pink luncheon scheduled at the Renaissance Baton Rouge Hotel on September 30th and encouraged them to show up in their prettiest pink outfits. She also reiterated dates for the remaining 2012 Komen events.

Upcoming 2012 NAPW Baton Rouge, LA Local Chapter monthly meetings are planned for Wednesday, October 10th and Wednesday, November 14th. A representative from Komen will be the featured speaker at the October meeting. Trina has invited a Mary Kay consultant to present at the November meeting. Beauty consultations are planned to give members and guests makeup tips just in time for the holidays. The date for the end of the year mixer is to be determined.

The meeting concluded with members expressing how much they had enjoyed the visit to The Red Shoes and the discussions that took place during the meeting, said Trina.

Valdosta, GA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012

Azalea Health Innovations (AHI), Inc. recently provided the Lowndes County Partnership for Healths (LCPFH) Partnership Health Center with their Azalea EHR system as well as donated full training and implementation services from their experienced client relations team.

The two organizations joined forces after the LCPFHs Partnership Health Center, a free primary healthcare facility staffed by healthcare volunteers who offer their time to serve the healthcare needs of the working uninsured in Lowndes County, made the decision to automate and streamline the workflow of their practice. The LCPFH was looking for an electronic health records system (EHR) which would be usable by multiple volunteers and found that AHIs Azalea EHR was a natural fit. An EHR is a collection of electronic health information about individual patients or populations that may include a range of data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal stats like age and weight, and billing information.

Part of our corporate culture is to give back to the community and help non-profit organizations. This partnership fits that profile. The LCPFH is a valuable organization with volunteers who truly care about the health of their community. Providers are working full days in their own practice before volunteering at the Partnership Health Center. We are proud to call them a partner and thrilled to provide them with Azalea EHR, says Baha Zeidan, CEO of AHI.

AHIs client relations team have been diligently working with and training the LCPFH staff and volunteers for the past month to prepare them for their scheduled launch. Upon launch, the Partnership Health Center will receive a host of benefits afforded by Azalea EHR. Advantages include: access to electronic prescribing, a multiple provider and location scheduler, office workflow management feature, doctor specific internal templates and custom fields, a Meaningful Use dashboard, a secure messaging and tasking system as well the ability to give their patients access to their personal medical records through the fully integrated patient health records portal, Azalea PHR.

John Sparks, Executive Director of LCPFH says, AHI has worked with us on customizing the Azalea EHR to cater to our specific needs. As we are based on a non-profit platform, we require information that the average healthcare provider does not in order to receive grants and other funding; AHI understands that and has been very flexible throughout this process.
