It’s been a busy spring for the community outreach team, led by Natalia Trimnell (pictured above). Recently, PHC participated in CelebrAsian in Des Moines, Summerfest in Ames and Family Night at the Library in Boone. It was great to connect with our patients and friends in these communities!
We hope you will stop by and say hi at one of our upcoming events!
