“Community organizing is all about building grassroots support. It’s about identifying the people around you with whom you can create a common, passionate cause. And it’s about ignoring the conventional wisdom of company politics and instead playing the game by very different rules.” --Tom Peters
Christy Clausen asks that we bring non-perishable small food items to Monday’s meeting to help Interactors fill students’ backpacks when school starts.
August 5 memorial service for Evonne Barlow—Rotarians are asked to be at Swan Point at 10am to form the Honor Guard.

Rotarian brothers Jose Edurardo and Fred Mesquita, from Brazil, decided to go around the world with a message of prevention and curing Hepatitis C. It is a new project of Rotary International, Hepatitis Eradication Rotary Action Group. Jose and Fred are traveling in their former army ambulance for three years, over five continents, 180,000 kilometers in 50 countries.
Hepatitis C affects 500 million people in the world and only 5% know they have it. It is curable, but if left undiscovered, it can result in cirrhosis, with a liver transplant the only hope for survival. The brothers are able to perform the test and make referrals to medical professionals for a cure. The US cost for the test is $20 and it is most important for baby boomers to take it.
Pamela McCue, RN, BS, PhD is the Executive Director of the Rhode Island Nurses Institute Medical College. It opened in 2011 to educate the next generation of nurses with a focus on health technology, public health and home-based care. It is a charter school and the first middle college in RI.
Their students are primarily female and 84% are racially/ethnically diverse. They speak a number of languages, sharing a variety of cultures, which have been proven to be important in a patient’s recovery.  They start recruiting students in middle schools, where positive role models are important.
They target students who never thought about going to college, who have an interest in science and math. Students take college courses (not AP courses) earning college credits at local institutions of higher learning and eventually go on to universities for four year degrees and further.
