Hennepin Healthcare recently hosted a “Health in the Park” event at its Brooklyn Park clinic and pharmacy at 7650 Zane Ave. N. The event was part of Hennepin Healthcare’s Talent Garden, a series of initiatives to introduce youth and young adults to jobs in healthcare. Pictured are Hennepin County EMS members Kirstin Moore and John Sylvester, who are providing local youth with a 25-minute tour of an ambulance.


Tara Suivan, pharmacy tech, Tara Tindall, Brooklyn Park pharmacy manager, and Kim Tram, pharmacist, look on as local youth participate in a pill-counting pharmacy game using jellybeans and pill counting tools. The event also included a demonstration on stethoscope and pulse oximeter use, a pediatrics demonstration using a reflex hammer, a physical therapy exercise demonstration and an ambulance tour.
