Rural Health Rocks Concert
Coming up a little later this month is a lighthearted event that raises funds for an important cause here in Mendocino County. As a community that is far removed from major cities and health care organizations, county residents can have a hard time getting the high quality medical care that is often needed.
The Family Medicine Education for Mendocino County (FMEMC) was set up to combat that problem. The goal of this organization is to raise money to bring in more qualified health care professionals to Fort Bragg and all of Mendocino County. This information from the Rural Health Rocks website explains a little more:
Creating a rural family medicine residency program benefits the community in a multitude of ways including opening a pipeline of highly qualified family physicians to act as faculty while training the next generation of primary care physicians for the community. Such a teaching program at Ukiah Valley Medical Center (UVMC) would be a tide that lifts all ships in multiple counties, including meeting the needs for primary care on the coast as well as the community and rural health clinics in Lake and Mendocino counties. It is well known that resident physicians tend to stay in the region (within 90 miles) of communities where they train, especially if job opportunities are available locally.
One of the ways they’re raising money for this initiative is through the Rural Health Rocks concert that happens annually in Mendocino County! This event brings in some great names in music, and this year is no different.
Cause Coffee for the FMEMC
Thanksgiving Coffee will be at the Rural Health Rocks concert this year, serving coffee and selling bags of our Rockin’ Roasts – three coffees that benefit the FMEMC and the life-changing work they are doing. These coffees are also available online for a limited time:
Stayin’ in the Groove Decaf – A bold bright blend to keep you in the Groove.
The Mendo Vibe – Clean, smooth and woody, with a splash of Light Roast to supercharge this Sumatra Gotta Hava Java.
With an Attitude – Dark brooding guitar chords over a steady percolating bass line, topped off by a smokin’ lead vocal.
