THE BELMONT CHILDCARE ASSOCIATION

The Belmont Child Care Association (BCCA) is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to raising financial resources necessary to maintain a quality Child Care Center (Anna House) for the benefit of working families at New York thoroughbred racetracks, ninety percent of whom are Mexican.  The BCCA also determines the admissions criteria for the children using Anna House, serves as an Advisory Board to its child care service provider, and acts as a liaison between the Center and race track management and other services.

Located at Belmont Park, Anna House is for children between the ages of six weeks and five years of age, and opened its doors the beginning of January 2003.  Both front side and backstretch employees at Belmont and Aqueduct Racetracks are able to use the center.  The hours of operation are 5 AM to 1PM, seven days a week, to accommodate the racetrack employees and their work schedule.  The BCCA depends on donations and grants to keep Anna House operating.  To learn how you can help give the children the head start they need for school call The BCCA at (516) 488-2103.  Visit our web site www.belmontchildcare.org to learn more about us.

 HUDSON RIVER HEALTHCARE

Hudson River HealthCare’s health promoters traveled to Puebla, Mexico to participate in a week-long health promotion training program developed in collaboration with the State of Puebla Secretary of Health Services, the Puebla Migrant Affairs Commission, and the Secretary of Social Development’s Agricultural Migrant Program.

Dr. Carmen Moran Vera of the Puebla Secretary of Health, in collaboration with Hudson River HealthCare staff, organized an intense, interactive training which included workshops on health promotion strategies on immunizations, women’s health, prenatal care, HIV/AIDS, TB, and diabetes. The Health Promoters were impressed by the emphasis placed on and by the interdisciplinary team approach to promotion and education.

Of great interest to the participants was a visit to Coxcatlan where the Secretary of Health’s modern medicine health center supervises a traditional/alternative medicine health center next door.  Some of the traditional medicine services that are offered include curanderos (folk healers), limpias (spiritual cleansings), temescal (ancient ritual steam bath), parteras (traditional midwives), and a laboratory that supervises the processing of medicinal herbs to be distributed by the in-house pharmacy.  This integrated approach provides an opportunity to increase awareness and access to healthcare services, allowing the Secretary of Health’s personnel to build upon the trust and relationships developed over generations between the community and traditional medicine practitioners.

Hudson River has developed collaborative binational relationships with State Health Secretariats, Migrant Affairs Offices and other organizations in the Mexican States of Puebla and Oaxaca to improve access, continuity and quality of healthcare services for migrant and immigrant populations by building upon the knowledge of the health care systems in Mexico and the United States.

The health promoter training program was developed to:

Increase knowledge of the health care systems in Mexico; increase understanding of the migrant population’s health priorities; increase awareness of the challenges faced by migrants that impact health; increase familiarity of health-related beliefs, traditions and cultural values; provide an opportunity for the exchange of experiences, program strategies, and educational materials; and provide an opportunity to learn from models that work in outreach and promotion

An invitation has been extended to the Mexican Government in Puebla to learn about the US Health System in October during Bi-National Health Week-2007.
